“We’re delighted to welcome Derry Credit Union on board as official partners of our player development draw. Derry GAA and Derry Credit Union share community-based values, with both organisations working extremely hard on the ground to support the development of local communities in Derry and the health and well-being of their people. I want to thank everyone involved at Derry CU for their support which is much appreciated.

“We must never lose sight of development efforts for the future, and with the support of organisations like Derry Credit Union, we can help to ensure no stone is left unturned in efforts to help young players achieve their potential for their club and county.”
