Sligo GAA are hosting a Family Open Night in Markievicz Park on Friday next 16th May where families and supporters will have an opportunity to meet the Senior team as they prepare to meet Galway or London in the Connacht Championship on 21st June.
This countrywide initiative by the GAA provides an opportunity for all supporters particularly children to meet the players before the Championship kicks off in earnest.
The organisers are delighted that following her success on The Voice of Ireland, Laura May Lenehan is going to appear at the event to sing a few songs for those in attendance and meet some of her many fans from across the county.
Sligo GAA are making a special effort this year to attract as many children as possible to the event. All Primary schools in the County will be contacted and parents are especially welcome. While the children enjoy the Skills competitions and Mini games refreshments will be provided for parents courtesy of our Senior Team Sponsors, the Radisson Hotel & Spa, Sligo.
A wide range of events have been drawn up with Competitions and Prizes, Face Painting, GAA Merchandise and the Scruffy Duffy Show with Cartoon characters in attendance. Darragh Cox and the Ocean FM outside broadcast team will also be present for a live broadcast.
In addition there will be opportunities to have photographs and autographs with the players and Pat Flanagan Senior team manager is more than happy to provide time with his panel as they continue their preparations for their Championship tie with Galway in Markievicz Park on Saturday 21st June.
All children in attendance will receive a free Senior team poster and everyone who attends will be entered in a draw for prizes kindly sponsored by the Radisson Hotel, The Embassy, Expert Electrical Sligo and more.
So come along and enjoy an evening with our County GAA players and as the GAA logo states – “Nothing beats being there”
