I am delighted to be here today to launch our exciting 5 Year Strategic Development Plan for Breaffy GAA Club. This plan is a culmination of months of research & is one of the most exciting and progressive events in the club’s history. The core purpose of the plan is to increase participation & to enhance the lives of its members, supporters and the wider community.
It will build on the club’s strengths and deal with potential challenges in a positive manner.
Seamus stated; This plan is being launched against the backdrop of a global pandemic. It is important that we acknowledge the impact Covid 19 has had on clubs all over the county, however it is equally important for clubs to adapt to this situation and work to overcome the challenges it brings.
