WHITEGATE GAA club have made a contribution of €1000 towards an Astro development at Scariff Community College.

Scariff Community College last April released details of a public campaign to fund an Astro development.

Through a 2021 Christmas Draw (€18,790), Fashion Show in October (€21,007), Sports Capital grant (€133,268) plus a contribution from Limerick and Clare Education and Training Board, the projected remaining cost is €400,000.

A school and community effort has been identified as critical to raising this amount with clubs across East Clare approached to make a donation.

Local clubs and organisations were contacted by the Astro Committee,

Among those to answer the call were Whitegate GAA club with officials from the hurling and camogie club recently presenting a cheque to the value of €1000 to assist with the fundraising efforts.

Darina Sheridan of the Astro Committee said clubs interested in making similar contributions are asked to contact any committee member.

On the field, the school will be hoping to have secured their place in a provincial final. A tricky away tie is the assignment for the Conor Breen managed school soccer side on February 23rd when they face off with Castleisland in Kerry.
