Edenderry GAA to feature in newly written soap opera

Starting this Monday Edenderry GAA are set to feature in a newly written mini series called 'One week in May'. The show was commissioned for one series only and will feature five episodes, each of which will be published on our club website between Monday May 21st until Friday May 25th.

The show was written in the late hours one night in Byrnes Bar where most of the big GAA decisions are made in this town by two men who claim they were stone cold sober at the time. However, both men have claimed they wish to remain anonymous as Edenderry GAA are refusing to pay them a dime.

"Oh yea we rang the treasurer, pitched her our idea. She thought it was great but there was no way in hell we were getting a red rex for it she said" one of the writers told us. 

"We tried to wrangle a few quid outta her but she was having none of it. Wouldn't even give us a bingo book for Sunday night after all our hard work" the second writer confirmed.

"The mini series revolves around a letter that's received by the Vice Chairman David Farrell inviting Edenderry GAA to play St Aidanchenko's GAA club somewhere in Eastern Europe next Saturday evening May 26th. However, as the world and his mother knows at this stage, the club hasn't a bean to it's name. They're flat broke. They ring-fenced everything for development remember" writer number 1 told us.

Club Chairman Willie Forde is desperate to see the team travel to Kiev and represent Edenderry GAA on the international stage so he approaches a somewhat controversial character in the club to see can he help them out in their time of need.

Willie's initial approach doesn't go to well but like always in GAA circles there's someone manipulating and pulling the strings in the background to get things done. Just when you think you've figured it all out, BANG, Keyser Soze himself appears" one of the writers confirmed.

Cue dramatic music!
