Thank you all who donated to the Do It For Dan Trust!

Meath GAA are doing it for Dan!
Building on the massive effort by our clubs, our county players are joining the efforts.
Our first fundraiser is a great one. Colm O’Rourke is auctioning one of his jerseys from his championship playing days.
Colm has some great days in green and now he wants to assist the Do it for Dan campaign.
Please see this video for information about the challenge:
The jersey is the authentic one worn by Colm in the 1995 Leinster Championship. The famous Kepak logo is on the front and number 13 on the back.
Colm now nominates Martin O’Connell, the Millennium Man, from the Team of the Century to provide the next jersey.
