Cairde Loch Garman has gone from strength to strength in recent years with a growing worldwide membership. The official fundraising arm of Wexford GAA, with members from Dublin to Dubai and from Sydney to Savannah provides significant support for the Wexford GAA Strategic Plan.
The recent USA Sporting Package Prize Draw was organized by a subcommittee called the USA Friends of Wexford GAA with members including Eamonn Byrne, Larry Carroll, Cronan Dempsey, Martin Kehoe, John Murphy, Joe Morris and Adrian Fenlon supported by a wider membership of passionate Wexford supporters.
