Edenderry GAA notes

Club AGM

Edenderry GAA are holding their AGM on Friday December 8th at 7:30pm in the Club Pavillion. All are welcome.

Sports Capital Grant

Following the submission of a very detailed and valid application, we have secured €102,000 of that funding under the Sports Capital Grant towards the next phase of our development.

Despite being the largest grant allocated to any group in Co. Offaly, the grant only represents c.50% of the project costs associated with the Astro Facility. When we complete our Carrick Esker pitches in the Spring we will be putting our renewed energies into making up the gap to get started with this badly need all weather & floodlight facility.

You can help by signing up to Club 300 Membership.

Our meticulous planning in recent years, our strategies and sound financial management have positioned us to capitalize on this and other grant funding. Many congratulations to those club members that assisted with the application. In addition we must thank the Principals and management of our local schools for their on-going support. This facility, like all of our facilities are open free of charge at all times to our schools.

Many thanks to our National and Local Representatives that have taken an interest in our Project and supported us along the way. We are delighted to have Marcella Corcoran Kennedy T.D, Carol Nolan T.D & Barry Cowen T.D. with us last April when we launched our plans. All of our local representatives are supportive of our overall vision but in particular Noel Cribbin, as an active member, has taken an especially keen interest.
