Co-op Launch

The Launch of the Galway Soccer Co-operative was attended by well over 100 people in the Meyrick Hotel in Galway city on the 8th December. The event was broadcast live on Galway Bay FM and speakers on the night included the Mayor of Galway City, Donal Lyons, FAI Cheif Excetutive, John Delaney, Galway United Manger, Tommy Dunne, and Galway United Chairperson Bernie O’Connell. It was evident from all the speakers that the story of the rebirth of Galway United FC was a successful one and that the co-operative ownership model that it is proposed the Galway Soccer Co-operative will take in the future is the way forward for a strong and success football club that has its roots firmly in the community.

The committee would like to thank everyone who helped on the launch night, including Iain McDonald, who has provided the pictures from the Launch.
