St Rynagh’s GAA Football Club has embarked on an ambitious project to develop new facilities in our sports ground in Cloghan. In 2009 the parish was very successful at GAA games and in order for us to continue we need to have our facilities on a par with the best GAA clubs in the country. The current club facilities were built in 1961 as this was the same year St Rynagh’s was formed and these have served us well. However for us to capitalise on this success we need to provide modern and improved facilities for all our teams for the future progress of the club.
This year we have over 60 people involved with all our teams and without these people volunteering their time the club would not be able to function. In April when we had our first underage training session of U8’s to U12’s, we had 120 boys and girls playing football in Cloghan. We are launching our first ever St Rynagh’s Football GAA Summer Camp in August and this is available for all boys and girls up to 12 years of age. There will be more information about this over the coming weeks. The population of our parish has increased over the last decade with new people joining our community. The GAA is a great way to meet people and socialise and we’d like to see more people getting involved. If you would like to find out more about what is happening in the club feel free to ask any of our committee members or log onto our website www.strynaghsfootballclub.ie
Next year will see St Rynagh’s celebrating its 50th anniversary. The club plans to celebrate this with various events throughout the year for everyone to enjoy. We’ll be remembering the great teams of the past and looking forward to the future with great enthusiasm. The club is about to start on its plan for the next 5 years and these meetings will be taking place over the coming months. We’d like to see everyone from the community getting involved and everyone is welcome to attend these meetings.
The club is working hard to make sure that we provide the best facilities for everyone in our parish to use over the coming years. However this will require a major fundraising drive to get the project up and running. We hope this brochure will demonstrate the great work that is taking place in the club and we have included some ways that you can contribute to our fundraising drive. To accommodate the wealth of talent that is coming through we really need the support of club members, players and everyone from our community to bring this project to fruition. This is a very exciting time for your club. We are asking you to help us make this project happen.
