Melvin Gaels GAA Club Notes 20/09/2018

Senior Championship Quarter Final – The Seniors were very unlucky on Sunday to be on the losing end of a very close game against Aughawillan. Well done to all the players and mentors, Billy, Conor, Brendan, Paul and all involved. They have ensured that the Club is involved in Senior League and Championship in 2019. This is so important to the Club.

Under 15 Championship – Well done to the under 15 team and mentors on another great win over Annaduff in the Championship in Annaduff. Final score Annaduff 4-3 Melvin Gaels 5-11.

 50/50 Draw – The winner of last week’s draw was, Barbara Fahey, Barr Road, Kinlough. Barbara won €260.

And if you are away from home, you can still support Melvin Gaels!

Improvements to Facilities – More Fundraising ideas are needed to help with the badly needed improvements to the facilities available to the Club.  The drainage of Melvin Park is almost completed and funds are needed badly and it will take a lot to complete Phase 1 of the project, which is the realignment of the carpark wall and draining and realignment of the playing. It is an exciting and ambitious project which will cost in excess of €200,000 but it is urgently needed. More Club members and players are needed to help. The support has been very good so far. 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
