Our Dinner Dance was a resounding success on Saturday night last, a wonderful nights entertainment was enjoyed by one hundred and sixty people. Guests of honour were Victor Shaughnessy and his wife, and Fr. Dermot Kavanagh. The ladies on the committee ensured everything was in order and had the function room in the Grand Hotel decked out in the red and green of the village. As it was St. Valentine’s night all ladies in attendance received a red rose courtesy of Rathnew G.A.A.
After a lovely meal presentations were made to our Junior Cs, Junior As and Senior team. Players of the year - Senior: Nicky Mernagh. Junior A - Dean (Dando) Franey, Junior C - Jason Strafford. Well done to all recipients.
Our new chairman John Snell addressed the large attendance, so too did Victor Shaugnessy, and Senior team manager Harry Murphy. The ‘craic’ continued well into the small hours.
