GAA club wins prize to remodel dressing rooms and facilities

AN Irish-speaking GAA club has been named the Dublin county winner of the Chadwicks Kit Out Competition. 

 Na Gaeil Óga, CLG are a Dublin football, hurling and camogie club based in St Catherines Park, Lucan and the Phoenix Park that was founded in 2011.

The competition which has been running all summer offered GAA clubs across Leinster the chance to win over €20,000 worth of Chadwicks’ products to develop their club facilities.

Na Gaeil Óga CLG scooped the county prize of €1,000 worth of Chadwicks products which they intend to use to help with the transformation of shower and dressing room facilities as the club continues to grow. 

The Chadwicks Kit Out judging panel comprised Kilkenny legend Tommy Walsh, his fellow Chadwicks Brand Ambassadors Eamonn Dillon (Dublin) and Collette Dormer (Kilkenny) as well as Chadwicks Group Finance Director, Brian Conneely and Chairperson of the Leinster GAA Infrastructure Committee, PJ Kelly.

The panel deliberated over the hundreds of entries that came in from across the province over June and July.

They were particularly struck by Na Gaeil Óga CLG which is providing its community with a sense of identity and creating a home for all ages in Dublin to take part in GAA through the Irish language.

Dónal Ó Cearúil from Na Gaeil Óga CLG said: “The Chadwicks Kit Out competition prize of €1,000 worth of products from our local branch in Lucan will really make a difference to our growing club that was only founded in 2009.

“Our focus is to give our home and away dressing rooms, as well as the showers and toilets, a complete make over.

“We also hope to put up signage within the community to inform people about our club.”
