Fires football and hurling academy has gone from strength to strength in recent years thanks to the expansion of its catchment areas which includes Firies, Farranfore and Ballyhar.
Up to 150 boys and girls ranging from U-5s to U- 9s, disembark onto Páirc Éamonn each weekend along with the ever enthusiastic coaches in a socially considerate atmosphere.
A Persistent Requirement
Derek Comerford, chairman of Firies Coiste na nÓg, outlined that maintaining and updating the club facilities for the youth of Firies is a persistent requirement.
Mr. Comerford said he is thrilled that Mike and Mags Moriarty of Moriarty’s Centra, Farranfore are in a position to sponsor Firies football and hurling academies.
Expressions of Gratitude
Derek could not express his gratitude enough to the Moriartys and their resounding commitment to the club.
“We hope the generosity of the Moriarty family will be recompensed by many thriving days on the pitch.
“Their absolute dedication to the club and its youth will benefit the core grassroots of Firies GAA Club and its football, hurling and ladies football teams and assure its robust continuance in the future,” said Mr. Comerford.
