In Pictures: Successful Portarlington GAA fundraiser brings new dressing rooms closer

SHARE

There was a huge crowd in The Heritage Hotel in Killenard at the weekend for Portarlington GAA’s €20K Drop.

The club are raising money in order to be able to build brand new dressing rooms in McCann Park.

The plan is to construct four new units under their existing stand and a statement on the club’s website thanked all who helped make the fundraiser such a success.

They said: “We would like to thank everyone who attended our 20K Drop Fundraiser and those who were lucky enough to win some money.

“A huge thanks to all our exhibitors, advertisers, those businesses who contributed spot prizes and patrons who supported our 20k Drop fundraising event to make it the successful event it was.

“These contributions along with our previous “buy a brick fundraiser” have helped the club raise the necessary funds for our new dressing rooms which will see four new county standard dressing rooms /showers rooms/ referees dressing rooms constructed under the Colm Maher stand in McCann Park to be ready for use in 2019.

“Your support is greatly appreciated in helping to bring this project to fruition, by all in Portarlington GAA club, young and old.

“Our club would encourage all our members and supporters to support those people and businesses who support our club.”

Our photographer Julie Anne Miller was there on the night to capture some of the crowd who turned up.
