The Centra Store in Emyvale, owned by Glyn Williams and family, has undergone a complete
redesign and was officially launched on Saturday, March 10th with great razzamatazz.
There was a full programme of entertainment and fun competitions with prizes galore.
Pat the Baker was there giving out goodies and Silver Hill Farm was there giving
everyone a sample taste of some of their very tasty duck products. Face painting
and an art competition with plenty of Ice Cream for all kept the children occupied
but everyone had to get a look at Sam. Yes, Sam Maguire travelled all the way from
Dublin to be there and three of Monaghan County players were in attendance and were
in top demand to be in photos. Conor McManus, John McCarron and Emyvale's Ryan McAnespie
are great ambassadors for the GAA and for the clubs they represent and they made
themselves available for photos and autographs before they rushed off to meet up
with the rest of the County squad as they boarded the bus for Galway. Glyn sponsors
Emyvale and Truagh GAA clubs and juveniles and adults from both clubs turned up to
receive the sponsorship for the coming season. Outside Northern Sound broadcast their
Saturday Sports Programme and interviewed Glyn on the big occasion and helped to
spread the word that there was plenty going on in Emyvale's Centra.
