Have You Made Your Mark –The Club is involved in the fundraising which has started and some of the Committee are calling to all the people of Kinlough and surrounding areas. The support has been very good so far.  Many have nominated loved ones who have had been involved with the Community Centre and the facilities over the years and are no longer with us. This is a nice gesture.  All club members, along with past and present players are asked to support this fundraising venture. The work on Melvin Park will be starting in the next few weeks. The Committee members will get to Tullaghan, Askill, Rossinver, Glenade and Ballintrillick shortly and will be asking everyone to help make this project come true.  The fundraising 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, and your name on a commemorative plaque. To get your “Mark on Melvin Park” contact Spar, Kinlough or Pat at 0871787194 or Katherine at 087 287 0086 or go to
