Sligo GAA has been enjoying time in the National spotlight this year with a novel match in Markievicz Park against New York GAA who were on their own historic journey, followed by a rare Connacht final appearance and their first points on the board in the inaugural All Ireland Group series of matches.
One of the stalwarts of the Sligo GAA club scene down through the years, Tubbercurry GAA Club are celebrating 135 years of history. Having won 20 senior Championships, the most for a Sligo GAA Club, they last lifted the ‘Owen B. Hunt Cup’ in 2014.
Tubbercurry GAA Club is a vibrant and community-oriented club with a rich history and a strong tradition of promoting Gaelic games in the area. The club's dedicated volunteers and coaches work tirelessly to provide a supportive and inclusive environment for players, fostering their skills and passion for Gaelic games.
Kilcoyne Park Development
The Club are currently engaged in an important development program at Kilcoyne Park. This will see the club redeveloping a second full-sized top-class pitch, complete with flood lighting and the addition of a walking/running track.
3D Personnel are proud Sponsors
3D Personnel are delighted to continue as one of the Clubs Elite Sponsors for the 2023 season. Our Operations Director for Ireland, Brian Curran has a long history with the Club, having made his debut in 2002 and being part of the winning team in the 2014 final. Brian was delighted to hand over a sponsorship cheque on 3D Personnel’s behalf earlier this year. Brian is pictured above with Tom Brouder, the Tubbercurry Club Registrar.
Speaking about the importance of Tubbercurry GAA to this part of Sligo, Brian had this to say:
The club is an integral part of the town, it's an outlet for people of all ages to get involved with the sport of GAA.
It's important in a small town like Tubbercurry to have access to sports and an organisation like the GAA to be a part of a team environment. It also opens doors to different avenues throughout their lives with the connections that are made in a Club like Tubbercurry.
With the development of the new pitch, it shows the club is committed to providing the best facilities possible for future generations of players. Hopefully we will have more players following in the footsteps of current inter-county players, Eddie McGuinness, who is involved with the Sligo Senior team, and the lads involved with the u20 Connacht winning side, Joshua Flynn and Eoin O’Donnell, and Conor McDonagh who is with the Sligo Minor team who won the Connacht minor shield this year.
As part of the Kilcoyne Park development the Club is looking at providing a walkway around the club grounds and this will also cater to people looking to keep fit and walk in a safer environment, rather than having to walk on a busy street or road in the evenings. It's down to the great work of the many volunteers within the club and I am glad that 3D Personnel could make a contribution to this great work in progress.
The Best of Luck to Tubbercurry GAA Club with their Kilcoyne Park development and for the 2023 season.
