It started with a simple ring forty years ago,
And now we have a treasure chest that’s began to overflow,
A loving family of four, three girls and a boy
And five grandchildren as well, they are our pride and joy.
We have also gained a wonderful daughter so beautiful and grand
A caring son as well to join all in the band,
The years have rolled by and gladly with no regret,
Because we have no doubt we were the “ perfect set”.

A sincere thanks to our family and to all who made our night such a wonderful and joyous occasion.
Mick & Frances.

Thomas Gleeson Memorial Tournament

Thomas Gleeson Memorial Tournament

Thomas Gleeson Cup:
The fourth annual Thomas Gleeson Memorial tournament for U10 to U8 boys was held on Wednesday 29th Sept in the Town Park. Following the two semi-finals, George Stapleton’s team played Harry Young’s team in the Plate Final and Seamus Ryan’s Team played Daniel Fahy’s team for the Thomas Gleeson Cup, The Plate final was a very close game with the teams inseperable after normal and extra time, and with the time moving on, it was agreed to settle for the draw. In the Cup Final Seamus Ryan’s team proved the stronger and with some fine dispalys throughout they emerged worthy winners. Well done to all the young players who took part on the night, their managers supporters and referees. Thanks also to Diarmuid Boyle who ably assisted by juvenile Club Chairman Michael Carey presented the Thomas Gleeson Cup to Seamus the winning Captain and the medals to the winning team.
