Melvin Gaels GAA Club Notes 22/01/2019
Great Night for the Girls – On Monday night the girls had a superb training session and Q&A after with Martha Carter. This was very inspiring for our girls and parents. Many thanks to Martha for joining us. Martha is a current player of the highly successful Co. Mayo club team Carnacon and a former Mayo player
Community Walking Continues – Melvin Gaels Healthy Club Committee is joining up with Operation Transformation, the GAA and the Community, for Ireland Lights Up 2019. The walk was interrupted last week because of a major Power cut, nevertheless, a good few turned up and took part. The walk continues every Thursday night until February 21st. The track will be lit up from 7pm to 8pm and everyone of all ages is asked to come along and join in this free weekly event.
50/50 Draw – The winner of the 50/50 draw last week was Ryse Brennan, Cloone, Kinlough who won €290. Get your ticket now for this week’s draw.
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 underway. 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 www.kinloughcommunitycentre.wordpress.com. The Club is very much involved in this fundraising and any donation would be greatly appreciated.
