Mini Bus appeal off to a good start
01 March 2010
It's a long road ahead but the substantial shortfall in the insurers valuation and the cost of a new bus was cut by £500 on Sunday when the underage hurlers and camogs got a great response from the Glasgow public at a bag packing at Tesco in the east end.
The club will be meeting soon to outline their plans to raise the shortfall. It already seems certain that the proceeds of their annual charity dinner in April which funds all of the club community development activities will now have to be set aside to finance the new bus. "It is disappointing that we have to go down this road as the dinner usually covers all of our coaching, equipment and youth leadership activities for the next twelve months, but the priority for us is transport. We are not set up like a traditional GAA club in Ireland. Our children are spread all over the city so transport is the key " explained the club chairman. Due to lack of games locally the bus is also used regularly to take teams over to Ireland for games. In the coming weeks the under 12 hurlers and under 10s footballers had planned to go on trips. These have now been shelved until the bus is replaced.
