John Quinlan is a longstanding resident of Clondalkin and active mentor in Round Tower GAA Club with his wife Angela also a mentor and their four young children (Kitty 13, Tom 11, Mary 8 and Sorcha 5) all playing on club teams. John is originally a native of Tipperary, with a successful playing career with Moyne/Templetouhy GAA Club. He also played and assisted with the Round Tower Adult Junior hurling teams over many years. When the clubs children needed coaches at the nursery – John and Angela gave their time. When the U8s, U11, U13s needed coaching for hurling, camogie and football – John and Angela gave and continue to give their time. When Round Tower GAA Club needed help on organising committees – John and Angela gave their time. 

John has been diagnosed with a tumour in his liver and he is currently undergoing medical treatment that involves costly ongoing biopsies which can only be analysed abroad, these are critical in determining John’s future course of treatment. John is a dedicated family man and for John “home is where the heart is”. He is the primary financial provider in the household and this is where your support is really needed. The goal of Round Tower GAA Club is to raise €25,000 to contribute to John’s health care and associated costs. 

Join them on the 20th November 2021 to help raise some vital funds for John & Angela’s journey.  On this day, Round Tower GAA will host a festival of GAA games against teams from Moyne/Templetouhy GAA Club, the U8’s Girls, U11’s Boys, U13 Girls and Adult teams will participate. These games will take place in Monastery Road GAA facilities, Clondalkin. There will also be a host of other fun activities arranged on the day. This fundraiser is being organised by family, friends and the wider GAA community.
