Congratulations to Tattyreagh Gaelic Athletic Association Club who received a donation of £30,000 from the Asda Foundation to improve their facilities for the benefit of people in the local community.

Our Omagh store's community champion Colleen Heaney and general store manager Niall Keyes called in at the club to present the cheque, which will help pay for upgrades to health and fitness facilities at their training ground.

Founded in 1917, the club has over 500 members aged from 10 to 70 years old who regularly use the health and fitness facilities at the club’s training ground – including its junior and senior team players.

Sean Darcy, Tattyreagh GAA Treasurer, said: “Huge thanks to the Asda Foundation for donating £30,000 to An Taite Riabhach GAC. The grant allows us to develop our onsite facilities for the benefit of all members of our local community.

“A special thanks to Asda Omagh Community Champion, Colleen and general store manager Niall – who regularly trains with us – for their continued support.”

Colleen said: “Tattyreagh GAA is an important hub in our community for people of all ages to come together, stay active, and play competitive sport.

“I was thrilled to present the club with a donation of £30,000 as part of the Asda Foundation’s local sports grant scheme. I look forward to coming back to see the club when the renovations have taken place – as it’s set to be great facility for local residents of all ages!”
