A great night was had by all in attendance at the Launch of the Development Plan for our new Club Grounds. The night was also a celebration of the sense of community which Young Irelands GAA Club represents. Many photographs of various club events over the years along with our plans for the future were on display. 
Tom Hunt did a fantastic job as MC for the night as he introduced the various speakers. Chairperson, Liam Walsh, spoke of the growth in underage base of the club in recent years and of what great benefit this development will be to the club. Conor Denieffe, Vice Chairperson, Kilkenny County Board commended the club in their aim to provide improved facilities for the members of the club. This development will need to be well planned for financially and Club Treasurer, Patrick Farrell, outlined club plans in this regard. The most immediate initiative will be a Monster Draw and co-ordinator Michael Pitt spoke of how this will be organised.  A short video was shown which captured the essence of what our club means to so many people and the sense of enjoyment provided through the years from the founding of the club to the present day. This video is available to view on our home page.  Special Guest for the night, Micheal O Muircheartaigh, captivated the attention of all present as he spoke of what the GAA Club means to the community. It was a privilege to have Micheal in attendance to launch this Development Plan.
