New Fusion 4 Plus or €75,000 in cash up for grabs in Mayo GAA Club’s fundraiser

A new Fusion 4 Plus or €75,000 in cash is up for grabs in a novel fundraiser spearheaded by Kilmaine GAA/LGFA, two South Mayo-based clubs, to raise funds for facilities and pitch development.

Following the recent official launch, a spokesperson told editor, Catherina Cunnane, that “the main function of this fundraiser is to raise funds to develop and enhance the clubs’ facilities, benefiting the entire Kilmaine community and all the local sporting teams”.

About the clubs

Kilmaine GAA club is based in South Mayo and has a rich history, having been founded in 1937.

Over the years, the spokesperson went on to say, the club has expanded its facilities, including the addition of a new stand, dugouts, and gym, to meet the growing needs of the community and its sporting teams.

However, the current community pitch is now operating at full capacity and as a result, new and additional facilities are required to cater for all teams for training and games.

The spokesperson told the publication: “Two players from Kilmaine GAA have received All-Star awards over the years. In 1979, Joe McGrath became the first Kilmaine man to win this prestigious award.”

“In more recent times, Oisin Mullin received an All-Star award in 2020 as well as two young player of the year awards in 2020 and 2021.”

“Meanwhile, Kilmaine LGFA club was formed in 2014 to promote Gaelic football for girls.”

“In a short period of time, the club has achieved enormous success, in particular, at underage level and it continues to see an increase in its membership numbers.”

“Kilmaine woman, Pauline Mullin, received All-Star awards in 1992 and 1995 whilst playing for Mayo Ladies.”

“The majority of our committee members are farmers or come from a farming background. McHales are from Kilmaine and commenced their business in Kilmaine many decades ago. When fundraising was first discussed, we wanted to look to our local resources first and foremost when deciding on a prize.”

“McHale has been our club sponsor for over 30 years, and we are delighted to go on this fundraising journey with them.”

About the baler

The Fusion 4 Plus is McHale’s flagship product and is sold in 55 countries worldwide.

The spokesperson outlined that it is a state-of-the-art agricultural machine that features film-binding technology, ensuring operator comfort and efficiency.

With new features such as ISOBUS compatibility and an advanced pick-up system, this machine offers enhanced throughput and faster wrapping speeds.

Renowned for its reliability and heavy-duty build quality, the McHale Fusion 4 range continues to deliver exceptional performance.

The spokesperson concluded: “By participating in this raffle, you not only stand a chance to win an incredible prize, but you also contribute to the growth and development of vital community facilities.”

“The funds raised will go towards creating modern and inclusive facilities that will benefit current and future members of the community and all our teams.”

Tickets are now available to purchase on – one for €50 or 3 for €100, with the draw expected to take place in early April 2024.
