Annual General Meeting – 2011

Mark McGovern Support Fundraiser

Mark McGovern, from Belcoo, Co. Fermanagh, N.I. is one of Ireland’s finest up and coming Inter County Gaelic footballers. Mark recently took a break from his inter county commitments with the Fermanagh team and travelled to San Francisco to play Gaelic football for the summer. On June 25th 2011, Mark sustained a severe brain injury following an off the ball incident during his very first match in the US.

Mark spent five weeks in San Francisco General Hospital intensive care unit in a critical condition. During this time Mark suffered a severe bout of pneumonia along with infection from the MRSA bug. Both conditions were considered life threatening but thanks to his incredible resolve and the professional skills of the staff at the SF General, Mark overcame both and started an intensive course of rehabilitation.

Unfortunately Mark’s travel insurance did not cover contact sports and his medical costs have already exceeded $1,100,000 USD. While Mark continues to make progress, the path to full recovery is likely to be a long one and significant costs continue to mount daily.

Mark, his family and friends need our help to get Mark through this difficult time. We hope this fundraiser will generate the funds to do this.

Fundraiser date: Thursday, November 10, 2011, 8pm.
Fundraiser venue: Dora Keogh

Please come to show your support for Mark and his family. This promises to be a great night hosted by Hugo Straney, with live music and lots of fantastic prizes.
