I hope you enjoyed having us as your guests. Thanks also to Simon Gillespie, New York Games Development Officer for organising our week-long visit and the huge planning you put in over the past few months.
We owe the Donegal NY club a huge debt of gratitude for their part in both organising a first-ever Golf Outing on our behalf in New York and for the role you played in making the trip the great success that it was. The committee who worked so hard was excellently led by Marty Moss and included Keelan Mc Laughlin, Rory Sweeney, Pat Mc Gill, Ronan Mc Feely, James Mc Fadden, Declan Gallagher, Michelle Comer, Mary Grant, Anton Diver, Earl Gallagher & Mark Mc Clafferty. Thank you so much.

To all those that supported the fundraising draw, played in the golf outing, bought auction items, donated prizes or supported the trip in any way from home, New York, Boston, Philadelphia and other areas, we appreciate it so much.
We had a tremendous week and look forward to the summer now with your continued support.
