We are very grateful for the donation from As Darragh Did. We are delighted that Andrew has chosen to help us to keep new interest in the Club and help us to get more people from the local community involved. The last year has been hard for the Club as our players were unable to get any training or games. As a rural Club competing with other sports, we have to work hard to keep our players interested in Basketball. The donation from As Darragh Did towards training kit for our u8 and u10 age groups will help with the retention and promotion of the club in the area. This also allows us to introduce new players into the club and they can feel more a part of it with the provision of club kit.
We are open to new members and volunteers. In the spirit of Darragh McGinley, please get involved …. As Darragh did. We are forever grateful and Darragh will always be remembered fondly by all at Donegal Town Basketball Club.
Note from Wanderers GAA Club, Ballyboden – Under 8 Girls Camogie Mentor Karen White
Wanderers GAA Club, Ballyboden is a small local rural club in the parish of Ballyboden. Our home ground is in Frank Kelly Park, Mount Venus Road, Dublin 16 in the heart of the Dublin Mountains.
Our club is over 100 years old but we are about to field our first ever Camogie team and we are humbled and honoured to receive support from As Darragh Did. To be one of the first recipients of sponsorship from As Darragh Did is very exciting for our club and we cannot wait to get our hands on the jerseys and for the girls tog out in them proudly with the As Darragh Did logo on the front.
Our Camogie girls are between 6 and 8 years old and the synergy and symbolism of the As Darragh Did sponsorship is something that is very much recognised by the girls mentors and parents.
We are so excited for our first match and we hope that Andrew will be able to make it to Frank Kelly Park for our first run out.
