Cairde Chorcaí launches membership options and new website
Cairde Chorcaí launched its membership options and new website at an event held in Páirc Uí Chaoimh last night.
At the launch event attended by Cairde Chorcaí Directors, former players and managers from both ladies and men’s teams and Cork County Board officials; details were given of the membership options available to Cork GAA supporters at home and abroad.
Cairde Chorcaí was launched last year and its aim is to support Cork teams to succeed at the highest level. The board is comprised of passionate Cork supporters, a number of whom have represented Cork successfully in the past.
Speaking at the event, Chairperson of Cairde Chorcaí Ted Owens said; “A question I am regularly asked by supporters is ‘how do we join up’. They now have this facility.
“Cork supporters crave success. They know that by supporting Cairde Chorcaí they are helping Cork teams in a practical way to compete at the highest level.”
He added that all monies raised by Cairde Chorcaí goes directly to help Cork teams or to provide coaches to clubs and schools.
“Our teams deserve the best, they must have access to the best training facilities on a year-round basis. The monies raised are ring fenced for teams, facilities and underage coaching.
“Our concentration to date has been on good governance structures and putting a high-quality board in place. We are now ready to undertake our primary task. Fundraising.”
Cairde Chorcaí hope that Cork GAA supporters at home and across the world will support the membership drive. With options from individual membership up to corporate gold membership, check out www.cairdechorcai.ie for more details.
“We also hope to reach out to the Cork diaspora worldwide, but a solid home base is vital. In a digital age an attractive website is vital and we’re delighted to launch our new website www.cairdechorcai.ie which will allow us to connect with Cork GAA supporters no matter where they live in the world. We are also on twitter, Facebook and Instagram so follow our updates to get all the latest news,” Ted Owens concluded.
