GAA teams re­unite

Bray People - - Kilmacanoguediary -

KIL­MACANOGUE G.A.A. club chose to hon­our the 1983 Ju­nior Cham­pi­onship winning team and the very suc­cess­ful 1958 team last Thurs­day night. This was pre­ceded by the an­nual Mass for the de­ceased mem­bers of the club and af­ter­wards in the Glen­cor­mac Inn, where many pho­to­graphic mem­o­ra­bilia was on dis­play.

Three priests, and un­usu­ally three for­mer play­ers, cel­e­brated the mass with Fr. Ben Mul­li­gan the chief cel­e­brant as­sisted by Fr. Jack Lynch and Fr. MacAleer. Fr. Ben re­called the great pride both he and the team felt when they de­feated a strong Kil­coole team to win the Sch­weppes Cup in 1958 and an In­ter­me­di­ate Cham­pi­onship in 1959.

Peadar Smyth re­called some glo­ri­ous mo­ments over the clubs his­tory and great credit is due to him, Joy Burke and Su­san Fox for com­pil­ing such a great col­lec­tion of the clubs his­tory which brought back many happy mem­o­ries (and some sad ones).

Well done to all on what was a truly great night.
