New John Doyle Centre For Holycross Ballycahill

John Doyle being congratulated by adoring fans

The Holycross/Ballycahill GAA club are to host a senior hurling tournament on Sunday May 8th, between Tipperary and Waterford to mark their official opening of the new John Doyle Centre in St Michael’s GAA Grounds.

What is hailed as a fabulous new centre, this area includes four dressing rooms, board and club meeting rooms, a catering suite, an upper viewing area, gymnasium and sauna, plus a handball/hurlball alley, an outdoor astro-turf hurling wall and last but by no means least, a 1 km outdoor walkway.

This game is scheduled to start at 7.00pm with the official opening being performed by GAA President Christy Cooney with a blessing by Rev Fr. Tom Breen P.P. Holycross, taking place sharp at 6.30pm.

This is indeed a fitting tribute to John Doyle whose passing, in the parish, occurred very recently.
