REACTION: JP McManus generous donation to GAA clubs praised

JP McManus’ extremely generous donation in the tune of €3.2 million to the GAA has been met with widespread praise. Thirty two counties will receive €100,000 from McManus as a result of his generosity.

This all comes on the back of Limerick winning the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship for the first time in 45 years. The McManus family have backed Limerick GAA since 2004 under the Sporting Limerick brand.

Some of the reaction to the announcement of the donation can be seen below.

Kerry footballer Darran O’Sullivan was among those to pay tribute
