A Thank You From Belcoo O'Rahilly's G.A.A.

On behalf of the Mark McGovern Support Fund, we express our deepest thanks for your clubs very generous donation of £2600 and letter dated 29th December 2011.
This money has been deposited into the Mark McGovern Trust Fund, which was set up to help cover the enormous medical expenses incurred in the USA during the months Mark spent in hospital. Legal action is continuing in the USA and it may be some time before the family know the full extent of the costs involved. All the money raised is currently being held in a trust fund, overseen by a local solicitor and will be distributed to the family when it is needed.

Mark continues to need medical care on a weekly basis. He is making progress but sadly for him it is unlikely that he will ever play his beloved Gaelic Football again. His family recently held a night of thanksgiving for the local community and it is hoped that in the coming months they will get an opportunity to thank the communities and people across Ireland who helped then during the months Mark spent in hospital.

We have passed on your letter to his family and once again express our gratitude for the effort made to generate this very generous donation.

Best wishes to Shane Ui Neill GAA, Glenarm for the 2012 season.
