New Decade – New Development
As a new decade unfolds the future development of our club is to the fore of our thoughts and as a result we are working on some exciting plans here at Caherlistrane GAA. To plan comprehensively with the future in mind, we need to look to our facilities and examine what can we add to our current offering that will cater for future demands. In stating this, nothing will supersede the importance of football and all of our objectives will, we hope, in the end enrich the development of the game at our club. Enhancement of our facilties will require substantial additional funds and will only happen by way of an elaborate and concerted community effort driven forward by the club.
On October 28th this year we will embark on the first phase of this development plan by staging a Fundraiser at the Galmont Hotel in Galway city together with Caherlistrane LGFA. We are delighted to announce that members from across our parish will enter the jungle as part of the highly entertaining Jungle Fundraiser.
We hope that you will be part of this journey with us & be part of a club night like no other!
The Jungle Fundraiser is a very unique & exciting fundraiser which is taking Ireland by storm.
Much like the popular ITV show, I’m a Celeb…Get me out of Here! The Jungle fundraiser pits two teams against one another as they endeavour to collect stars while overcoming their greatest fears. Not for the faint hearted, 24 contestants become campmates for the night while audiences are gripped with fear & laughter as they watch to see who can survive the Hell Holes, bugs, snakes, devour the gourmet critters and overcome a series of spine tingling and tension filled trials to beat their opponents, and be crowned King or Queen of the Jungle.
This fundraiser comprises a fascinating themed set and bespoke props. With no rehearsals required this event continues to delight, is very straight forward to promote and has raised upwards of €70,000 for organisations from Kerry to Donegal, Waterford to Tyrone and Dublin to Galway to date. Campmates have included people from all walks of life including politicians such as Minister Helen McEntee, Michael Healy-Rae T.D., GAA stars such as Waterford’s John Mullane, Cork’s hurling captain Seamus Harnedy, Limerick’s Kyle Hayes and characters such as Mattress Mick and Fr. Ted’s Joe Rooney!
