St. Michael’s GAA, Roscommon have won a Digital Clock and Scoreboard courtesy of EirGrid as part of the GAA Moments in Time Online Competition.
“First of all, thanks to the people of the club and community for their trojan effort to promote this venture which drew a massive goodwill response from near and far” explained Michael Regan, Club PRO at St. Michael’s.
“This outpouring of support for our rural club fills one with pride and a sense of community. Thanks to each and every-one who supported us and voted for our photograph which attracted in excess of 1,500 votes.”
“Capturing that photograph was truly a ‘Moment in Time’ in the history of our club. This is a great prize which will further enhance our facilities at Ardcarne Park and great respect goes to EirGrid for their sponsorship.”
The competition kicked off in conjunction with the GAA All-Ireland Hurling and Football Championship when EirGrid, proud and official timing partner to the GAA, encouraged GAA fans to post an image of their favourite Moment in Time to either Twitter or Instagram using #EirGridGAA.
