Glenville GAA

22 June, 2020


On Friday evening last June 19th, John Dempsey from Pieta House collected a cheque in the Club Grounds of €7,020 from our clubs Shave or Dye Fundraiser last month. 
Pictured is Shane Forde presenting the cheque. Also pictured is Andrew Desmond, Niall Sullivan, Shane Forde and Seàn Desmond sporting our new set of Glenville Jerseys along with Intermediate Manager Paudie Cahill.
