Sam Maguire Wall

This scheme is our main fundraising activity for the further development of Sam Maguire Memorial Park. It provides people with a unique opportunity to be associated with the development of the Park, thus helping to provide a memorial fitting for the man whose name is synonymous with the G.A.A. It also guarantees that your support will be recorded for posterity on the wall of the function room in the Dohenys Pavilion.

The scheme will operate as follows:
The wall will be comprised of individual granite plaques (see right) which can be purchased for €300 / £250stg / $450usd. The plaques will be mounted on the main wall of the Club Pavilion and can be inscribed with a family name and address, club or association name or individual’s name and address. The wall will have a centrepiece featuring a portrait of Sam Maguire and The Sam Maguire Cup etched in Irish Granite (see above).

Further queries and expressions of interest can be communicated to any one of the Club Sub-Committee dealing with the project as follows:
  • Dr. Michael Herlihy
  • Michael Farr
  • Kevin Collins
  • Barry Herlihy
  • Joe Doyle
  • Tony O’Sullivan
  • Kieran Farr

The club’s under-age teams play under the name of Sam Maguires. The past 20 years have been particularly successful with many West Cork titles being won in both football and hurling. Three county titles have also been won. This development will be of benefit to our young people whose talents must be catered for and nurtured. They must be given every opportunity to display these same talents at the highest level and on the biggest stage. It is their heritage, history and gives them a sense of belonging. We are heavily dependent on the goodwill of the community, without whom a lot of projects would not be possible. The people of Dunmanway and surrounding areas make a large contribution every year through the purchase of lotto tickets and various other fund raising activities. Without our ticket sellers and collectors, none of this would be possible. To all we owe our deepest thanks.
