St Josephs Glenavy GAC

2016 Annual Presentation Dinner.

 

St.Joseph’s GAC Glenavy held their Annual Presentation Dinner in the Ballymac Hotel on Saturday 30th. January.

 

120 guests were present for a very enjoyable evening. Guests were our former county chairman Jim Murray and his wife Rosie club president Fr. McBride, our main sponsor Martin McClinton and his wife Patricia. Also present were Patrick Nugent and Paul Johnston our new senior team management. Special guests were the late Francie Doone’s wife Gearldine and daughters Briege, Chloe and Erin.  The highlight of the evening was the presentation of the intermediate football championship medals to the senior panel by former County Chairman Jim Murray.

 

The Doone family presented a perpetual cup to the club to be awarded annually to a member who has gone that extra mile to help in anyway to make an individual or the club to be better. In an emotional speech Briege said the individual who was to be the first recipient had gone several extra miles to help her family come to terms with her Daddy’s untimely death through the many excellent photos he had taken of Francie which were a consolation to all the family. Robert Trowlen the club’s photographer was the first recipient of the cup.

 

A framed montage of photos of Francie at coaching and playing were presented to Geraldine, Briege, Chloe, Erin and Francie’s Sister Maire.

 

 

The following received annual club awards.

 

Senior Ladies player: Michelle Gregory.

Senior male player: Joint Patrick Gallagher & Oisin Hamill.

Junior male player: Eddie Nelson

Club person of the year: Peter McClenaghan

 

 

The club are currently looking people with an interest in helping St Joseph's becoming a stronger club in 2016. If you or anyone you know are interested in helping the club in anyway by volunteering your time, then please do get in touch.

 Coaching

We currently have 283 underage players at our club and the numbers are growing. 2015 was a successful year for our teams and to ensure this good work continues, it is important that we have enthusiastic people on board. Coaching experience and qualifications are not a requirement as these can be completed through the club.

 

Volunteers

As many of you already know we run several large fundraisers every year and these take quite a lot of organisation. If you would like to help at any of these or think you may have ideas to improve our fundraising events then we would be delighted to hear from you.

 

Development

2015 saw St Joseph's Glenavy spend in excess of £100, 000 on its grounds. We plan to further add to our facilities in 2016 and beyond. While we have an excellent Development Committee with a structured plan, we would like anyone living in the community who feel they could assist to come forward to help on this committee.

This list is not definitive and we are an open club, keen to attract new members

 who want to help develop  St. Joseph's  Glenavy GAC in any way .

   

Big Glenavy Dander: 4th October, 9am to 6pm

 Many of you will be aware of the recent work being done at our grounds at Chapel Hill. We are delighted to announce that our new walking path, part of Phase 1 of our Development Proposals, is complete!  In order to raise awareness of this new community facility and officially open our new walking path we are inviting all members of the community, young and old alike, to come and join us in a bid to walk 500 miles…

 

 This phase of our developments was made possible in part due to funding secured from The Alpha Programme (for more details see below) and we would like to take this opportunity to thank them for their assistance and support throughout this project. Mel Waddell, representative from The Alpha Programme Steering Group said, upon the commencement of works in July, “It’s great to see that work has started on site for both the pitch and path improvements and we look forward to returning to see the project completed and being used by the local community.”

 

This is a facility for the whole community, so if you can come join us and do even just 3 laps of the path you will have completed 1 mile and there will be only 499 to go!  The more people who participate on the day, the faster we can hit our target! Who knows, maybe we could go even further! We will walk 500 miles, but can we walk 500 more??? (The Proclaimers won’t be there unfortunately…or indeed fortunately!) More details to follow in the next few days.


Thanks for your continued support!


The Alpha Programme


Established in 2008 by Alpha Resource Management Ltd, The Alpha Programme is managed by Groundwork NI and has already provided just under £3million in funding to nearly 90 biodiversity and community based projects within ten miles of the Mullaghglass landfill site outside Lisburn. Information on the Programme can be downloaded from www.groundworkni.org.uk or contact Mel Waddell at Groundwork NI on (028) 9074 9494 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

 As of Monday 27th of July our main pitch will be shut for maintenance work to be carried out. As a result and due to the heavy plant that will be involved our facilities will be closed from 8am-6pm each week day as a matter of health and safety. Our training pitch will now be used to cater for training and all games will be played away from home until 2016.
