New York GAA to Host ‘Hall of Fame’ event in Manhattan to raise funds for new clubhouse
The New York GAA County Board will host a “Hall of Fame” event in Manhattan next month in order to generate funds for its new clubhouse at Gaelic Park — and broadcaster Marty Morrissey will be on hand to host the event.
The event will be held on Nov. 10 at the Edison Ballroom, located at 240 W 47th St., where three dedicated GAA men will be honored.
Donal O’Sullivan, who founded the construction company “Navillus,” will be presented with the Lifetime Achievement award. Navillus has been New York GAA’s primary sponsor for many years.
Maurice Foley, of Limerick, will be honored with the Hurling Hall of Fame award while Frankie Dwyer of Leitrim will be presented with the Football Hall of Fame award.
All of the profits will go toward the construction of the new clubhouse at Gaelic Park. All of the footings and foundations have been installed, and the steel will be erected in the coming weeks, according to Liam Bermingham the secretary of the New York GAA County Board.
“We are thrilled to honor these men, who have supported New York GAA for many years and not just the GAA, the entire wider Irish community,” Bermingham said.
November’s Hall of Fame follows on from a similar event in Dublin last year.
