Often GAA clubs across the country do battle with the ultimate goal of winning county championships however one club in the Banner County finds itself in with a chance of winning a car.

Newmarket-on-Fergus GAA have entered a competition in association with TG4 Sport and Subaru for a chance to win a car which can then be raffled off to raise funds for the successful club.

All entries will be adjudicated on a provincial basis once the September 7th deadline passes. 25% of the marks in the judging process go towards the amount of likes received on the club’s Facebook page for the video post, the remaining 75% will be based on the submitted video. TG4 will announce the winning club live on air on September 15th.

“We are absolutely honoured that we get the opportunity to showcase our small but very close community,” a spokesperson for Newmarket-on-Fergus GAA told The Clare Echo. “It is a fantastic opportunity that could completely transform our little club and provide us with the vitally needed funds for a new clubhouse and facilities for our little future stars”.

In their submission, The Blues took inspiration from the club’s foundation featuring senior manager Bob Enright and coach Alan Barrett as Edward Bennett and Reverend James Loughnane in a video produced by Paschal Brooks. Over 1,000 people have already liked the club’s post on Facebook and they are appealing for more people to do so before the closing date.
