Welcome to the International Club of Ireland
"Hands across the net, friendship across the ocean "
To set the game above renown,
To love the game beyond the prize,
To honour, while you strike him down,
The foe that comes with fearless eyes,
To count the life of battle good,
And dear the land that gave you birth,
And dearer yet the brotherhood,
That binds the brave of all the earth.
-Sir Henry Newbolt...
IC PHILANTHROPY FOUNDATION (ICP) – UPDATE APRIL 2020
The IC Philanthropy Foundation has approved and sent most grants for which ICP received applications. We have had to stipulate that, proportionate to the time when the programmes are not able to take place, a part of the grant should be held over until next year. We are not clear what impact the pandemic will have on our fund raising but are assessing this.
Many of the IC Philanthropy programmes are on hold for now but some are communicating with their players online - where possible. Videos are posted with challenges and activities for children to try at home to keep them active and engaged.
We asked the ICP programme organisers to send in short updates to share with you. These can be found here and on the IC Philanthropy website
