Melvin Gaels GAA Club Notes 08/05/2018

Big Development Launch Night – The Fundraising initiative will be launched on Saturday next May 12th in the Community Centre. Special guests on the night will be ex Gaels player, former head of IDA, Breege Connolly and Colin Regan. The Club will have a display on the night which will outline the achievements over the years and plans for the future. It promises to be a great night for all Gaels players, members and supporters past and present. Light Refreshments will be served on the night. Everyone associated with the Club over the years in any way, whether as a player or non- player, at home or anywhere in the world, is asked to support these plans to make the badly needed playing facilities in Kinlough something to be proud of.   Part of the plan will involve “Make Your Mark on Melvin Park” for €100 which will represent a square of Melvin Park, entry into a draw, prizes 5x €1000, your name on a commemorative plaque. This event is open to everyone. So, come along on Saturday night and have a look at the future plans for the badly needed facilities at the Community Centre in Kinlough.
