Anne’s by the book

New Ross Standard - - SPORT -

PEN­CIL IN Satur­day, Fe­bru­ary 24, at 8 p.m. in your diaries, as that’s ex­actly when the St. Anne’s G.A.A. Club his­tory book will be launched in their club­house in Rathangan.

It has been painstak­ingly put to­gether over many years by Jim

Berry, the for­mer County Board and Le­in­ster Coun­cil Chair­man, and the end re­sult is a very im­pres­sive pub­li­ca­tion com­pris­ing more than 500 pages.

The his­tory of the games in the parish of Rathangan dates back to the foun­da­tion of the G.A.A. in 1884, but not sur­pris­ingly 2000 will take pride of place as that was the year of the club’s fa­mous Se­nior cham­pi­onship dou­ble. Sup­plies of the book are lim­ited, so get to the launch and make a sound in­vest­ment.
