To all our Club Members and their families,
Our club, Roscommon Gaels GAA was founded in 1959 when the two GAA clubs in Roscommon town amalgamated to form what we know now as Roscommon Gaels. As part of our 60th anniversary celebrations we are officially opening of our GAA facilities in Lisnamult with a set of events over the June bank holiday weekend.
After years and years of planning and fundraising by the various committees in Roscommon Gaels we have purchased, developed and built pitches, floodlights, a sports wall and dressing room facilities that we should be very, very proud of and we should all be there to mark the opening of them. These facilities are there for current and future generations of Roscommon Gaels, the local schools and our community and they should be celebrated and never taken for granted. We want all of our club to be together in our home ground of Lisnamult at the official opening.
Our GAA club is all about belonging, fostering a common sense of identity, pride in where we are from and the club we play for, being together, celebrating our achievements and successes and have fun together. There is something for all members to participate in and to mark this very important milestone in our clubs history and development. We are looking forward to seeing all members of Roscommon Gaels at the official opening by our club President and a founding member Mr. Barry Molloy.
