St. John’s GAA Club Contributes Impressively to Children’s Playground

On Sat. 29th Feb. 2020 the Officers of St John’s GAA  Club and their families braved the elements in the newly refurbished Children’s  Playground to  present a whopping €1,600 contribution  to members of Millstreet Town Park Committee.  Total proceeds were the result of a Table Quiz in the Bush Bar on 29 December  and the inaugural St John’s Cup 7 a side Soccer Tournament on 27 January. 
Millstreet Town Park wishes to express its sincere gratitude to  all organising  members from St John’s  GAA Club, their families and supporters for this fantastic series of fun filled fundraisers. Thank you to  the Community Council for providing  the AstroTurf  pitch free of charge for  the day of the Soccer  Tournament and to  the local businesses who provided spot prizes for these events.  A special thank you  to Connie Hickey of the Bush Bar for sponsoring medals, winning plaques and after event  food for all particpants at both events.  Thank  you to each and every Sráider who participated in any way.  Whether you paid for a quiz table, sponsored a soccer team or purchased raffle tickets, every  Euro counted, thank you.
 Finally, many thanks to Seán Radley for yet again giving up his time and providing the pictorial collage for this  presentation.
