Monageer/Boolavogue GAA Club has been boosted with fantastic news that it has claimed third prize in the 2021 Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps on-pack promotion, winning €5,000 for the club.
Cork’s Valley Rovers GAA club has scooped €25,000 in first place with Cooley Kickhams GAA Club, Louth winning second place with €10,000.
Kellogg’s, now in its tenth year sponsoring the Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps, held the nationwide on-pack promotion for all GAA clubs during the summer.
The winning clubs were chosen by draw to culminate the summer-long promotion in conjunction with the Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps. During a year where fundraising has been restricted and funds limited, the overall prize fund of €40,000 will provide the winning clubs with very welcome support when looking to invest in the club.
With participation levels understandably lower this year due to limited availability, the camps proved a real success giving children across the country a chance to socialise and exercise outside. 137,989 children attended Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps at 1,343 camps throughout the country. This year also saw the first camp in Dubai with 90 children attending to learn and improve their GAA skills.
Sarah Ferguson from Kellogg said:
“Our partnership with the GAA is very much focused on the grass roots of the Association. The Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps are the GAA Games Development Department’s flagship project and we are happy to continue to support this great initiative. We had thousands of entries and we would like to thank everyone who took the time to enter for their club. On behalf of Kellogg, I would like to congratulate Monageer/Boolavogue. This will be a huge boost to them in such a tough year but we are delighted to know that these funds will go back into the local communities and clubs, the heart of the GAA.”
Chairman of Monageer/Boolavogue’s Coiste na nÓg committee, Daire Turner, said:
“To be one of three clubs chosen for this prize money is amazing news. As one of the oldest clubs in Wexford, this money will go towards continuing to grow GAA participation in our community. Thank you to Kellogg for giving us the opportunity to continue to build and maintain the love of GAA in Monageer/Boolavogue.”
