JP McManus has donated €100,000 to every Gaelic Games county board in Ireland to be divided equally among their local clubs. McManus’ letter to each county board stated that the money is to be used for the continued development of Gaelic Games throughout Ireland.
The €3.2million gesture has been made on the back of Limerick’s All-Ireland Hurling Championship win this year
McManus has been a main sponsor of Limerick GAA for years and is heavily involved in sport, including horse racing and the upcoming JP McManus Pro-Am at Adare Manor in July 2020.
There are 38 clubs in Wicklow at this present time and the expected amount for each could exceed €2,500.
A spokeperson for the GAA has described it as “unprecedented” and an “incredible gesture”.
