The Aisling Centre: The Aisling Centre in New York is celebrating its 25th Birthday and is involved in the development and upgrading of the Centre. Local man, Niall McKenna, has been appointed an Ambassador for the Centre and we congratulate him on his appointment. This Centre has been a mecca for Irish people arriving and settling in the area and many have been assisted in getting employment and accommodation and help to adjust to the new surroundings. Monaghan folk have been among them and many Monaghan people have helped provide the services offered by the Centre. Anthony McKenna, Catherine Flood, the late Phil Traynor and many others have contributed greatly to the work of the Centre. To assist with the current developments at the Centre various fund raising events have taken place including a sponsored 6k Run/Walk. Monaghan GAA organised a similar event which was held at Cloghan on Sunday October 31st and attending the event were Anhony McKenna and Mary Kirk, sister of the late Phil Traynor. Chairman, Declan Flanagan, at Cloghan, highlighted the benefits gained by Monaghan people due to the Aisling Centre and also detailed some of the Monaghan people who have been heavily involved in the life of the Centre and thanked all who had turned out to support the event. This included county manager, Seamus McEneaney, players Conor McManus and Sean Jones, the county Hurling team and many of the County officers. He thanked those who had promoted the event with special mention of Nicola McKenna and her helpers. He sent his best wishes and those of Monaghan GAA to the Aisling Centrre and wished them every success.
