Major new development at Kinawley GAA club

“WE believe this is an important place, because it’s our place”.
Thus, Kinawley chairman, Donnacha O’Cathain, speaking at the ‘Cairde Brian Boru’ public launch, placed in context the south Fermanagh club’s major new venture, further expanding;
“Cairde Brian Boru, the Friends of Brian Boru, are people who have a strong belief and a firm commitment to the Kinawley/Killesher area and its people”.
“We believe its young people are important because they are our young people”.
“Above all, we believe that a hugely important contributor to the life and wellbeing of our young people, and indeed all our people, is Cill Naile Brian Boramha agus Naomh Mhuire Cill Laisir CLG”. Designed to continue the ongoing grounds development programme which has seen approximately £200,000 expended over the past three years, the new initiative envisages provision of new clubrooms/changing rooms complex.
This will cater for male/female disabled members and also mothers and toddlers using facilities.
Also incorporating a multipurpose room to facilitate meetings, social events, educational classes and community gatherings for the many groups using the new walking track along with a community gym to be sited between the two pitches.
Club secretary, Marie Allen, another major driving force behind the project, said that numerous other projects are also being targeted, all “to give our community and especially its young people the facilities they deserve”.
To this end, she explained, people are being asked to commit to a donation of £10 per month, payable by direct debit or a lump sum every six months or yearly, adding;
“We understand there will never be a good time to ask people for more money, but if we keep putting off our plans for the future, there will never be a good time”.
In appreciation, there will be a monthly draw of 5 x £100 prizes, the first of which will take place at the end of September.
