Tir Chonaill Gaels Club Notes - 17th May 2010
Last weekend the club travelled over to Killybegs in Donegal to take part in the official opening of the Eamon Byrne memorial park
It was a great occasion for the club to be part of this historic day with GAA president Christy Cooney doing the honours with many well known dignitaries present on the day.
Former Ulster council president Tom Daly, Donegal Chairman PJ Mc Gowan, All Ireland winning manager Brian Mc Eniff, Mick Mc Grath and Noreen Docherty were all there along with former TCG members.
Kevin Mc Menemin got the first score on the new surface with the Gaels playing the host club for the Andy Duffy memorial cup.
A total of 23 players were used on the day with Killybegs coming out on top with a score of 0-13 to 0-5 but credit to all of the lads for putting up a great effort.
Afterwards a function was held in the Clock Tower, Fintra with presentations made to both clubs and a great night had by all.
Hangovers on Sunday morning were to be greeted with the news that all flights were cancelled and we had to make the dreaded journey to Dublin and onto Hollyhead.
The club to like to thank the Killybegs club for the way we were looked after, to Charlie Tully for putting us up in the Ritz and to Niall Erskine for giving Stocker and Maurice the abuse they have sorely missed over the last year!!
The senior team have a game on Tuesday evening 7.30pm at Greenford against St Brendans in the Conway cup. Check the local papers and club website for the weekend’s fixtures.
