New Nets at Anner Park Cloneen

November 7, 2018

St. Patricks GAA Club would like to thank Jonathan White of Surrey London and formerly of Ballyvadlea Drangan for his generous sponsorship of new nets which have been installed behind the goals in Anner Park Cloneen. Jonathan was one of the best ever footballers produced by St. Patricks and although emigration stole him from us at 20 years of age he had already won South and Co. Minor A football championships, a South Under 21 A football championship and had played in a South Junior A Football Final. Jonathan had also played Minor, Under 21 and Senior football for Tipperary Co teams.

In London Jonathan set up a very successful construction firm Celtic Contractors Ltd who do work for some of the biggest firms not just in England but in the World. Jonathan is very involved in the Irish community in London and is a former chairman of the Tipperary Association in London.                                                                  

The old nets had been badly damaged by storm darwin last year and due to age and condition they were deemed not repairable. The club had decided that new nets would have to be erected but of course funding was an issue so it was very welcome that Jonathon offered to sponsor the cost of the new nets. We thank Jonathon very much!
