Sinn Féin Councillor Sandra Duffy has welcomed the news the Department for Social Development has announced a funding contribution of £507,000 for the construction of a clubhouse, changing rooms and associated facilities for Na Magha Hurling and Camogie Club, with a further £100,000 being contributed by the Department of Culture, Arts and Leisure and the City Council.
“This is good news for the club and all those who have worked on this project over many years. I also would like to thank my party colleague Mickey Cooper who has been involved in helping with the club working through funding aspects for this project. It’s important that we maximise every opportunity to improve and enhance our sporting facilities in Derry and encourage more young boys and girls to take up sport. It’s great to be getting more sporting facilities into the greater Shantallow /Culmore areas.
The GAA is the envy of sporting and community organisations the world over, their commitment to their sport, communities, clubs and county is tremendous. I wish Na Magha GAC every success in the future.
