Naomh Conaill Notes 13th May 2009
The club had a day to remember last Sunday when they celebrated 125th Anniversary of the GAA in glorious weather conditions with a very large crowd in attendance. The day started with a parade from the town to the club grounds which was lead by the Ardaghey Piped Band and at the ground the 125th anniversary flag was raised by club chairman Poggy O’Donnell and Peadar O’Bhaoill sang Amhran na bfein which was followed by a tree planting cermony which was performed by Joint Presidents Leo McLoone and Phil Gallagher. We would like to thank Collite and Raymond Tracey for the trees. The underage players in the club were also catered for with a afternoon of activities and every child that particpated was presented with a 125th anniversary certificate. In the clubhouse old club photographs and videos of club games were on display and traditional music was played on side of the field. A special club mass was then held in the clubhouse and we would like to thank Fr Shane, Fr Gavigan and Fr O’Bhaoill who celebrated at the mass. After the mass we had celebrity football match with Kevin O’Donnell and James Ellis the celebrity bainisteoir. The game was very sporting and entertaining with some of the old timers dusting off their boots after a long lay of and some new boys playing for the first time. Kevin O’Donnell’s team came out on top with Jamesie Byrne getting the Man of the Match award and the word is that James Ellis team are looking for a rematch. Brigeen Gallagher rounded of the day in the field with Amhran na bfein. The night their was a traditional music session in the Highlands Hotel. We would like to thank everyone who helped in anyway to make the day such a great sucess that it was for the club and the community.
