James Clancy Memorial Fundraiser

Ballingarry AFC have launched a memorial fundraiser in memory of our friend James Clancy R.I.P. We are paying tribute to our founding member James by launching the James Clancy RIP Memorial Fund in memory of, and to honour him in a fitting way.

Our fundraiser aims to seek at least 185 contributors to sponsor a seat in the soon to be named James Clancy Stand (picture attached). The general sale of seats will go ahead next week Friday 15th of April but we are writing to you a week beforehand to give lifetime members the opportunity to buy first. All contributors will be listed on the memorial contributor’s boards which will in turn be erected and remain permanently in the lobby of the clubhouse.

There are two ways you can contribute:

You can sponsor a seat in the stand for €100.
For those who can afford, sponsor a seat for €250. As the James Clancy Stand is an approved
project under Revenue’s Tax Relief for Donations Scheme, the club would then receive an additional €167 from revenue based on your sponsorship of €250, bringing the total benefit to the club of €417.

We hope you will support this initiative in memory of James and help bring his vision of having a seated stand and full floodlights at the Paddocks to reality. The total cost of the project is €183,000 (€25,000 for the stand and €158,000 for the Floodlights). As you are already aware we received €150,000 from the Sports Capital Programme and we hope to raise the rest from your donation.
