Route ’51 winds a circuitous route around the globe and wherever green and red is worn then our Club 51 flag is in danger of making an appearance.
Marie Sweeney from Bangor took her footballing skills to Sharjah the capital city of the Emirate of Sharjah and whilst participating in the Ladies GAA tournament at the famous Sharjah Wanderers Sports club she managed to gather other Mayo ladies around to pose with the flag.
Pictured above, front row: Lorraine O’Malley, Ballinrobe (Sister of Kenneth), Lisa Dillon, Ballintubber (sister of Alan). Back row: Cliodhna Healy, Achill, Siobhan Lacken, Knockmore, Elaine Lily, Aghamore and Marie Sweeney, Kiltane (sister of Mikey).
Route ’51 continues through the Gulf States and the flag will next be appearing at the GAA World Cup in the Zayed Sports City Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
Where it goes after that is up to you – our members, readers and Mayo fans. Get in touch whether you are in Brindisi, Brisbane or Ballinamuck and we will see that the flag makes its way to you.
