ESB, Official Energy Partner to the GAA, recently presented our club with a cheque for €1,500. The prize is part of ESB’s GAA Fund whereby ESB staff members nominated a local GAA club that is making a difference in the community. We are very fortunate that Henry Kenny Junior recently started working for ESB and decided to enter the aforementioned competition.
Henry wrote a wonderful piece about our club to win the prize which you will see below. Over the years "King Henry" as played a major part on and off the field for our club and its safe to say he has never been found wanting. He famously invented the diving hand pass, a technique that very few within our club have been able to replicate since!!
"My Club is a club for the young and old alike, histories and stories of games past are played out by every member and guest alike. Every foot of it ancient turf has a story to tell, a shake of the hand, a tug of the jersey and a bounce of a ball. It means something to everybody. A vibrant underage structure for girls and boys requires additional some funding so that the memories of yesteryear are preserved and new unforeseen dreams can be realized and committed to the future record books."
Thanks Henry and ESB for your continued support.
