An evening with legendary GAA Commentator Mícheál Ó Muircheartaigh and some of the country’s most decorated GAA Stars will take place in Galway to raise funds for Renville Sports Grounds.
Mícheál will regale guests at the black tie event in The Galmont on Saturday, 9 March, with stories gathered throughout his 61-year broadcasting career.
Master of Ceremonies for ‘An Evening with Mícheál Ó Muircheartaigh’ is Darragh Maloney, Senior Presenter and commentator with RTE Sport.
National GAA Stars in attendance on the evening will share tales from their sporting careers and experiences with Mícheál as he conveyed highlights from the games they played to the nation.
Aiden Tierney, one of the top impersonators in the country, will entertain guests as will award winning comedian Barry Murphy of Aprés Match. ‘The Folk Footballers’ Leo Moran and Padraig Stevens, also of ‘The Sawdoctors’, will join in entertaining attending guests.
An auction with exceptional lots on offer will top off an outstanding evening in Galway.
Speaking at the launch of the event, Mícheál said Oranmore Maree is a wonderful GAA Club with hugely exciting plans for the future. I’m really looking forward to spending an evening with them in March.
Chairperson of Renville Sportsgrounds Management Committee Sean Kinsella said: “this fundraiser is set to be a truly special evening, one which has not yet been seen in Galway and most likely will not be seen again.
“It is rare to be in the company of a living legend and I believe sharing a room with Mícheál to be just that.
“We are working tirelessly to make this event a great success as we continue to make further progress with the development of Renville Sports Grounds.
“The facility cannot come to fruition quickly enough to service the gaping needs within Oranmore-Maree and the West of Ireland.”
