Grieving Down club stage fundraiser to remember trio8 May 2019, 10:56 am
Bryansford GAC are hosting a special memorial / fundraiser on May 25th in honour of three club members who died tragically in March.
Juvenile coach Ruth Maguire, former underage player Shane McAnallen and Martin Patterson, who wore the club colours last season, all lost their lives over St Patrick’s weekend.
Ruth’s body was recovered from Carlingford Lough on Monday, March 18th, while best friends Shane and Martin died in a road traffic accident in the early hours of the same morning.
Bryansford GAC have organised the family fun day in Newcastle later this month to raise funds for rescue charities in the area, namely Newcastle RNLI, the Mourne Mountain Rescue Team, the Search & Rescue Dog Association and Air Ambulance NI. The event will begin at St Patrick’s Park with a children’s football blitz on the Saturday morning at 10:30am.
