Official Opening of Club Gym

Gort GAA Club recently held the official opening of our new club gym facility. The gym has been constructed in what used to be the old changing rooms in the basement of the Clubhouse. All work was carried out on a voluntary basis with the money for equipment and materials gathered from interested users of the facility. Work commenced on the gym in December 2012 and the gym was fully up and running by mid-February.
It was decided to wait until early April to hold the official opening of the gym because the gym members took the decision to dedicate the whole facility to the memory of the late Cathal Forde, Castletown, Gort, who died in London on 10th April 2012. On the day after Cathals 1st anniversary mass, Friday 12th April 2013, members of the Forde family came out to the gym and met with some of the people responsible for the work and were given a tour of the facility. A commemorative plaque was kindly sponsored by Michael Regan and this was unveiled on the day. Gort GAA Club would like to thank all who gave of their time in organising and carrying out these works which turned an unused and derelict part of our club grounds into a valuable resource of which we can all be very proud.
