St. Brigid’s GAA club has launched a major development project involving the construction of a new gym and meeting room along with a series of infrastructural upgrades.
Aside from the construction of a gym and meeting room, the existing car-park will be extended and upgraded while the club dressing rooms, kitchen and roof will be fully refurbished.
St. Brigid’s are receiving LEADER funding of €356,849 for these development works and a specific fundraising target of approximately €120,000 has been set by the club to ensure these new facilities will be brought to fruition as soon as possible.
To coincide with the project, a fundraising campaign has now got underway, centring on a ‘Buy a Brick’ initiative where people can sponsor illustrated bricks that will eventually go on mounted displays in the new building extension.
Full details of the project – including a 3-D video- the fundraiser and payment options are now available on the club’s website, while publicity flyers were circulated across homes in the parish over the last week. The project committee is now set to mobilise the fundraiser on the ground this week.
“We are encouraging all our members and our club diaspora to support the club’s fundraising efforts in whatever way possible in order to bring to fruition a development that will have lasting benefits for our club and community,” said Club Chairperson, Michael McDonnell.
