My local Cafe has a permanent rainbow flag over the sales counter . Out of curiosity I asked them in an email the reason for the flag but got no response of yet .

GAA Museum announces new exclusive membership programme

Veteran broadcaster and commentator Mchel Muircheartaigh has been made an Honorary Friend of the GAA Museum in recognition of his legendary contribution as the voice of Gaelic Games for more than six decades.

The announcement was made by Aogn Fearghal, President of the Gaelic Athletic Association, at the launch of the GAA Museums new Friends of the GAA Museum membership programme.

Friendship has always been at the heart of the GAA and the programme has been created to support the GAA Museum in its mission to promote our national games by preserving their values, culture and most importantly, the people who have contributed to the Association.

One of the highlights of becoming a Friend is an exclusive invitation to a VIP gala evening at the GAA Museum with other avid supporters. An official presentation will be made to Mchel Muircheartaigh at this event.

The annual membership allows unlimited access to the GAA Museum with a guest throughout the year and a special guided tour with the Museum Curator. Friends will also receive a personal membership card, a welcome pack with a personalised mini-hurley in their county colours, a complimentary Stadium Tour, and discounts at the GAA Museum shop and caf.

Commenting Mr. Muircheartaigh, said: I am absolutely honoured to be made the first Friend of the GAA Museum. The GAA have been my passion, my career and my life, and I look forward to meeting other friends who sign up for membership.

Aogn Fearghal, President of the Gaelic Athletic Association, said: I want to congratulate Mchel who has indeed been a great friend to the GAA for so many years through his coverage, promotion and support of Gaelic Games.
