AND so Legion GAA Club said let there be light – and there was light.
And where there was light, there was plenty of it.
The future is certainly looking bright – in every sense of the word – for the green and white following the unveiling of a major new floodlighting system on the second pitch and training complex development at the club base in Direen.
The illumination of the area was the final piece in an extensive redevelopment jigsaw which was funded by the field and finance committee thanks to the income generated from the weekly Euromillions draw.
Club President Tommy Regan had the honour of switching on the new floodlights which sparked great excitement for the club members, players and officials that had gathered for the occasion.
The club gym was also upgraded as part of the new development.
“Club members, supporters, local businesses and sponsors all came together to ensure the club can continue to provide facilities for the young boys and girls of Killarney to partake in Gaelic games,” said Legion PRO Elaine O’Donoghue.
“A special word of thanks to our facilities and finance committees and all the volunteers who worked tirelessly to complete the project. In what has been a difficult year for everyone, this is a small beacon of hope for the good times returning in the years ahead,” she said.
