Grand Canal Walk 2021

Post by Sur lookit » Sat Mar 27, 2021 4:01 pm

Best of luck to all the walkers in this.

Hope all ye have dug deep for this one, I reckoned would have spent €500 on going to matches on various different items over the last year so twas no bother as I'm lucky to be working to pile some back into the county.
Pass it on to friends and family as county can do with all the financial support we can give.

Some great performances by Brendan Murphy and Michael Duignan himself, John Ryan and fair play to Kilclonfert with Josie Beacon and Cathal Mangan flying the flag out there!

Be great to get it over the €200k

ah yeah, everyone to their own as they say, personally I wouldnt be a great match goer now to be honest as it is a costly business and I tend to stay for two games when I do go after paying to get in.., that said I seen loads of game on the GAA TV thing stream over last summer and while I didnt spend next or near €500 I certainly did spend a bit more than usual and a fiver for most games was great value and some contribution to the cause.I did contribute a few bob to a few different walkers, again it wasnt near €500 and it was mainly busineses that were sponsoring the highe profile players/individuals taking part with large amounts such as €100 or €200 but the ordinary man or woman couldnt go that far. They exceeded their expectations I think anyway which is good.

This fundraising drive has been a great success.
When you're challenging for All Irelands, people will open their wallets, but when success is not an immediate prospect and in the middle of a pandemic
it's a far harder task.

It shows that there is plenty of goodwill towards hurling and football in the county. It's regularly spoken about how Offaly overachieved in the decades up to the millennium end.
On the other hand, for the last 20 years what we've shown on the field was an underachievement when you consider the GAA landscape.
