Melvin Gaels GAA Club Notes 15/01/2019

A Great Night for the Club – The “Harte of the Matter” in the Great Northern Hotel, Bundoran turned out to be a great night’s entertainment for all who came along. The guest speakers on the night, Caroline Currid, Mickey Harte, Aiden O’Mahoney, Brian McEniff and Rory Gallagher were all very inspiring. Everyone who came along was very impressed by the speakers and the event as a whole. Colin Regan did a fantastic job interviewing the guests and organising in general. The audience were also entertained by “Theresa May” and “Donald Trump” who came along at short notice, and gave their views on matters in the GAA. Thanks to everyone who worked so hard to make the night a success and to all who donated prizes for the raffle.  Thanks to all the guests for coming along and all in the community for the support.  The victorious Under 20 Championship winners were presented with their medals by Aiden O’ Mahoney on the night. Congratulations and well done to them all and their mentors. This is an event that will need to be repeated as many people were disappointed that they couldn’t make it on the night. Well done to all the organisers.

New Development Project – Many people from the locality and further afield have supported the Community      Development Project at the Community Centre, Melvin Park and Dressing rooms, which is well under way. Any Kinlough people travelling home at Christmas will see that Melvin Park has changed a lot. The Committee is appealing to anyone who has yet to support the development to try to help, by joining the draw or sponsoring in any way.  A lot of money is needed to complete the project which will be very impressive when completed and will be a huge benefit to all the Community. The fundraising involves “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 any of the Committee or go to The Club is very much involved in this fundraising and any donation would be greatly appreciated.
