'Cork supporters crave success'

Wednesday, 20th November, 2019 4:22pm

Former Cork GAA players, managers and members of the Cork County Board and wider GAA community gathered in Páirc Uí Chaoimh this week for the launch of Cairde Chorcaí's membership options and new website.

Cairde Chorcaí was launched last year and its aim is to support Cork teams to succeed at the highest level. The board is comprised of passionate Cork supporters, a number of whom have represented Cork in the past.

Speaking at the event, Chairperson of Cairde Chorcaí, Ted Owens said: “A question I am regularly asked by supporters is ‘how do we join up’. They now have this facility. Cork supporters crave success. They know that by supporting Cairde Chorcaí they are helping Cork teams in a practical way to compete at the highest level.”

He added that all monies raised by Cairde Chorcaí goes directly to help Cork teams or to provide coaches to clubs and schools.

“Our teams deserve the best, they must have access to the best training facilities on a year-round basis. The monies raised are ring fenced for teams, facilities and underage coaching. Our concentration to date has been on good governance structures and putting a high-quality board in place. We are now ready to undertake our primary task. Fundraising.”

He concluded: “We also hope to reach out to the Cork diaspora worldwide, but a solid home base is vital. In a digital age, an attractive website is vital and we’re delighted to launch our new website cairdechorcai.ie which will allow us to connect with Cork GAA supporters no matter where they live in the world. We are also on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram so follow our updates to get all the latest news.”
