Townland Challenge in Honour of Conor Quinn

Local Killeavy GAC hosted the first ever Townlands Challenge, were local GAA players from the past and present, both male and female came together to remember former Gael Conor Quinn

The poor weather conditions on the day did not deter the community from coming together to support the event and it truly was a battle of the greats amongst our townlands best, the ultimate prize to become the townland champion. After a great day of football and craic Meigh Village came out the winners.

In addition to the football, many of the family, friends and neighbours supporting the event enjoyed live music and a grand raffle which was held in the adjoining Killeavy club

With incredible support from St. Moninna's G.A.C. family, friends and local businesses the amazing total raised was £10,729.00 the proceeds of which were donated to PIPS Newry & Mourne.

The Quinn family would like to thank all who came and participated on the day, all who supported with gifts and donations, a special mention to St Moninna's GAC and thank you to everyone who helped in any way to make the event the great success that it was

PIPS Newry & Mourne would like to extend their grateful thanks and appreciation to the Quinn families, Killeavy and Camlough and everyone who supported the event for this very kind donation.
