Co Armagh club hail businessman with no GAA connections for huge gesture

A Co Armagh GAA were left singing the praises of a local businessman who left them stunned with a fantastic gesture this week.

Lurgan-based GAA club Clan na Gael were looking to install some new blinds in their new clubhouse – a recently opened £600,000 development – and like most people and businesses alike, had asked around for recommendations.

So, in came Jim Calder Blinds from Derryadd to measure up and give the club a quote.

The story was posted on the club’s official Facebook page.

It continued: “Jim obviously had no connections with the GAA and wasn’t sure where Davitt Park was.

“When he came to measure he asked lots of questions as to what we were about and was very interested in the underage and youth structures at the Clans.

“He then came back with his price for blinds for the new building – £0.”

The post added: “He wished us luck and asked us to keep encouraging the youth of the area to play games and stay on the right path.

“The committee of Clan na Gael would like to say a huge thank you to Jim. A nice gesture indeed.”
