He noted that it what a historic year for the club in many respects, particularly given the start of the indoor astro-turf complex. Declan said 2017 promised to be a busy year to finalise construction and fundraising for the new development, and said he looks forward to the coming year.
Secretary Brendan Murray delivered a comprehensive report on the club’s activities in 2016, and also stressed the importance of 2017 in the lifetime of the club. He appealed to all members, former members, supporters and sponsors to row in behind the indoor astro-turf project.

Astro Turf development
The astro turf development is coming along very well at Quigabar with the roof now in place, and the playing area complete in a number of weeks. We have launched our fundraising drive to help fund the completion of the project, and hope that supporters, players, sponsors and associates of the club can contribute in the next couple of months. There are three ways you can contribute – buying a brick (€100), block (€250) or wall (€1500). All donors will be remembered in perpetuity on a donor wall inside the building when complete. To donate contact Joe Cawley (087) 9173991, Eugene Nelson (087) 2339591 or pro.enniscronekilglass.sligo@gaa.ie. Your support at this extraordinary time in the club’s history would be greatly appreciated.
