Buncrana GAA seeks your votes 10.11.13

BUNCRANA GAA is urgently seeking your votes to help it win Better Together, a national online video competition.
The club is hoping that the local community will rally behind it and give it the votes it needs to win the €1,000 top prize.
Better Together is a nationwide campaign which aims to build support for hundreds of charities, community groups, clubs and associations across the country by encouraging the public to support these good causes and make a difference in their communities.
“Anyone can vote for us no matter where they are in the world,” said club Chairman Paul McGonigle. “The video gives a short snapshot of the wider role the club plays in the local community, what it does make this place a better place for all of us to live in. I’d say a lot of people will be surprised at the range of things we’re involved in.”
The club is the only entry from Inishowen and is hoping for votes from all over the peninsula and further afield too. “We’d really like people to use social media like Facebook and Twitter to get the message out there, to tell their friends and contacts about it and get online to vote. Hitting the ‘Like’ button on Facebook isn’t enough, people have to click the ‘Vote’ icon on the competition website,” said Paul.
The video was made for the club by local companies Crana Communications and The Memory Factory. Harry Kerr of The Memory Factory said he was delighted to be involved and that it was his way of contributing something to the club. “It was a great experience for us to do this. We’re looking at developing this side of our business, promotional videos and corporate work, so it was a good exercise in that sense too.”
Voting closes on November 22.
