KNOCKADERRY GAA & CAMOGIE LAUNCH FUNDRAISER “WIN A DREAM HOLIDAY”
Feeling lucky? Well if you are Knockaderry GAA & Camogie club have the draw for you! This autumn one lucky person will win themselves a holiday voucher to the value of €10,000!!!! Have you ever dreamed of taking the family to Disneyland, of visiting the sites across ancient Europe, of travelling along the trails in South America and into the Amazon or maybe just simply catch up with family and friends in Australia or New Zealand, well the WIN A DREAM HOLIDAY draw could very well make all that happen! Speaking at the launch on Friday evening last in the Halla Beag, Knockaderry, the local camogie club chairperson Orla Ambrose was keen to point out that “the winner of the top prize could travel to near any destination in the world in what would undoubtedly be a life changing holiday”. Aptly called the WIN A DREAM HOLIDAY, the draw says exactly what it is about with the top prize being a €10,000 holiday voucher from Ace Travel, NCW and all tickets purchased on or before July 13th will be in with an extra chance of winning 2 All Ireland Hurling final tickets and a cash amount in our early bird draw.
All proceeds from the draw will go towards the new playing facilities development work at Knockaderry GAA grounds. Chairperson of the clubs development committee, Ted Danaher, outlined what exactly the club is proposing to do “We plan to erect a 40 x 45metre hurling wall, fully floodlit and fenced with an all weather playing surface at the entrance to our grounds while also developing a public access walkway that stretches over 1km on our pitches perimeter. It means we have to move our current playing pitch upwards about 30 yards so that we will have ample space, this is just phase one, we have other development plans down the road’. The clubs were recently awarded €149,000 through the sports capital grant scheme for this project however since the project was tendered for two years ago, building costs have spiraled. “Revenue generated through this fundraiser will help us draw down our grant allocation as money has to be spent before it can be recovered and it will help us ensure that we maximise the development work at our grounds” continued Orla, the Camogie club chairperson, in front of a large gathering of club members and supporters. Ger Downes, chairperson of Knockaderry GAA spoke of the need for the current development “We are all very proud of our present facilities, so many people worked tirelessly to create and maintain what we have today but to continue to grow and develop our players it is critical that we provide the best training conditions for their skill and physical development so that we can be as competitive as we can into the future, this facility will allow our coaches to train players all year round while the development of a walkway around the pitch perimeter is something that will also benefit everybody in our community and we are very excited by what we have planned to do’. Downes continued by outlining to those present that work had already begun in the past week at the pitch with the raising of ground at the end of the pitch and that by the autumn, all going to plan, members would begin to see more work being carried out. ‘We are working hard on getting a timeline in place for our development, but we are confident that by autumn and into spring next year we will see significant changes’ he added. As the speeches drew to a close Danaher finished by saying that ‘this draw has universal appeal, we thought long and hard about this prize before we settled on it and we are asking for as much support as we can get for our draw, please tell you family and friends all over the country and the world, with this amount of money the winner will literally have the choice of travelling to any destination in the world for a once in a lifetime holiday’. As tickets started to be purchased at the end of the speeches there was much anticipation by all present for the months ahead, as much for the new development as it was for where in the world might one go if they won the top prize!
