Fundraiser for UHL
Ballysteen GAA & Monaleen GAA were due to open our respective Limerick Senior Football Championship campaigns against each other this coming weekend.
However, due to the current crisis we find ourselves in, we decided to come together with the aim of raising funds to purchase equipment and supplies that are needed at this moment for our Front Line Staff at University Hospital Limerick.
Both clubs are grateful for the support this initiative received over the weekend, where we have received nearly €6000 in donations at that of writing. Arrangements are now being made to donate the final sum of money to UHL. Keep an eye on club notes and social media over the coming weeks from update on donation being made.
Service to the Elderly
Ballysteen GAA along with Askeaton GAA & Askeaton/Ballysteen/Kilcornan Bord na nÓg GAA wish to offer our services to the eldery and the most vulnerable in our community during this current time and throughout the weeks ahead.
All three clubs are coming together to give back to our community that has supported us throughout good times and bad. We will be offering to help anyone who requires shopping, prescriptions, fuel etc to be collected on their behalf and delivered to their doorstep.
We will support local businesses to help keep our local community going. Listed below are our co-ordinators numbers. You can ring or text these numbers and we will organise assistance thereafter. Best hygiene practices will be used by our volunteers during the deliver of this service.
Thanks to everyone who is volunteering as part of this. Every little helps in the sustainment and sense of community amongst ourselves. Please remember to share this information to people who are not on Social Media so that they know this service is available.
