TWO Limerick GAA clubs will see their facilities benefit from an €11,000 grant donation from the Edwards Lifesciences Foundation.
Edwards Lifesciences announced the opportunity earlier this year to mark the extension of its presence in the mid-west of Ireland.
Out of the 34 applications submitted from both Limerick and Clare, the Limerick clubs that won were Mungret St. Paul’s and Fedamore GAA.
Éire Óg Inis and Parteen GAA clubs from Clare also received a donation from the foundation.
Edwards Lifesciences Ireland Plant Manager, Nathan Tenzer, said: “We would like to warmly congratulate the four clubs that have been awarded this grant due to the stellar contributions that they already make to the communities they serve, as demonstrated in their entries”.
“Our team at Edwards is looking forward to meeting with each of the winning clubs when we volunteer to help further enhance the clubs and support the work of the GAA”
Additionally, members of the Edwards team from it’s Shannon plant will also contribute to the clubs facelift by volunteering manhours.
The partnerships will culminate with a community fun day, which will include the provision of free heart health checks by Croi, at which the fruits of the facelifts will be revealed for the entire community to enjoy
GAA Community & Health manager, Colin Regan, said: “The quality of applications was incredible and revealed the extent to which GAA clubs across Clare and Limerick are determined to support the wellbeing of their local communities”.
