Fergal Costello, a former captain of the Mayo and Ballinrobe senior football teams, is to launch Ballinrobe GAA club’s Coaching Plan (2015 to 2020) on Friday night next, November 28th.

All club members, young and old, and GAA supporters are invited to the launch in St Joseph’s Primary School, Ballinrobe, at 8pm.

“The young members can come out for the launch, see our plans for the future of their club, and still be at home for the Late Late Toy Show at 9.30,” noted club chairman Alan Flannery.

Four sub-committees and a steering committee have been working on the preparation of this plan over the last few months.

The plan will contain over 30 recommendations that the club aims to fulfil over the next five years.

“In this plan, we hope to set about improving football in our club at all levels. There has been huge enthusiasm within the club and I know that club members will not be found wanting in terms of carrying out the wide-ranging actions now proposed”, added Alan.

“We are particularly pleased that Fergal Costello will be launching the plan. Fergal was a great servant of Ballinrobe and Mayo GAA and is universally respected within GAA circles. He enjoyed great success with Ballinrobe at school and club level, and Mayo at inter-county level. Even though he now lives in Kildare, he retains a huge interest in the affairs of Ballinrobe GAA club.

Light refreshments will be served at the launch. More on
