There was a very healthy turn out at The O’Loughlin Gaels GAA AGM last Wednesday evening. Chairman Brian Chairman thanked members for their continued good work and support of all teams and players. Development at the club has been ongoing over the last number of years with works to the new entrance, upgrading of the existing, maintenance of pitches, the external painting of the club house, upgrading of heating, electrcial, security and safety services all contributing to the continued development of the St. John’s Park Complex. Further plans will be implemented over the coming years and the continued support of members and supporters is appreciated.
