A NOTE: As many of you will know, our friends the Houston
Gaels, along with the rest of the Texas GAA community, did an
amazing job in 2014 to support young Gavin Glynn who traveled
from Ireland to Houston to receive treatment for a rare form of
cancer. Through the Gavin Glynn Foundation they are again
working to help a young Irish person come to Houston, the only
place where she can receive the treatment she needs to fight an
extremely rare form of cancer.
