Eoghan Rua hold novel fundraiser thumbnailThe Camogs, despite the early hour, show no shortage of enthusiasm for the 24 Hour GAAthon at St Joseph's College Sports Hall over the weekend. The event is the latest fundraiser organised by Eoghan Rua GAC Coleraine.

THE Eoghan Rua Club in Coleraine held a novel fundraiser at the weekend.
Entitled 'GAAthon,' it involved 24 hours of non-stop games in hurling, camogie football and ladies football. The event was held in St. Joseph's School arena and was well supported by the volunteers, particularly those who gave up their night's sleep.
Another Eoghan Rua stalwart continued his marathon of secretarial work for the club when Kevin Mullan was re-elected and is now far and away the longest serving club secretary in the county.
Kevin started his football career with Drum before moving to the Triangle area many years ago. He immediately got involved with the Coleraine club which he has served as player, referee and, of course, secretary.
Kevin modestly brushes aside his long service and just gets on with it. His tenure is now well into the 20s. Administration seems to fall easily with his siblings.
His brother Seamus recently retired as secretary of the Derry Competitions Control Committee while he had also served as secretary of Claudy and Dungiven over quite a few years.
Seamus is also a former North Derry Board chairman.
Another brother, Gerard, is a former Kevin Lynch's club secretary while the brothers' late father, Gerard, held the post of vice chairman of the North Derry Board back in the sixties.
