Last Sunday Stradbally GAA Club celebrated Gaelic Sunday with a Lá na Glubanna. Six teams mixed with current and past players both men and women took to the field for celebrity Bainisteoir and what ensued was some of the best craic had in years. All teams got stuck in and made the games very enjoyable for the large crowd in attendance. At the end of the day led by local Celebs Michelle Mullaney and Noel Costelloe led their team ‘The Táin’ to victory. The day was much more than football games on the field, there was lots of kid’s activities and games for everyone to enjoy. Stradbally GAA Club would like to thank all those who contributed to the organising of one of the most memorable days in years. Please check out the clubs Facebook page for all photos associated with the day.
Sunday the 16th of September saw the conclusion of our tree day, 400km round trip of Munster in association with Mental Health Awareness. The aim of the cycle was to raise awareness of Mental Health within our club and beyond, and also to raise much needed funds for our new pitch development. Trevor Curran, Eamonn Clancy, Mike Navin, Brendan Tobin, Roger Ronayne, Richie Jones, Dermot Gough, Nicky Connors and Darragh Kelly set off from Stradbally GAA Club on Friday 14th September at 8am and were joined by friends of Stradbally GAA Club along the way. At the end of the first day they stopped in Croagh Co. Limerick and were well received by the locals who contributed to the fund. Stradbally supporter Sean Dee who now resides in Croagh gave the lads a tour of the Club facilities. The lads were treated to some fin hospitality in the Croagh Park Bar by owner Deidre O’Connor who held a bucket collection for them. Stradbally GAA Club would like to extend its gratitude to the people of Croagh for their support. The Cyclists were joined by Claire Halpin as they moved onto Kerry, Clare and back into Limerick where the lads stayed in Ballyneety. They were joined by a further 6 cyclists on the Sunday as they returned to a fantastic homecoming with all the underage kids who joined in the cycle as it neared the village.

Stradbally U15 Ladies
Well Done to the u15 Ladies team who won their county final on Sunday against Kilrossanty/Brickeys on a score line of 4:7 to 4:2. The girls started well with the first score of the game that came from a well worked ball from the backs to the forwards and a goal was scored. The girls traded scores over and back with the Brickeys and they trailed at half time by 3:2 to 1:4. Coming out at half time they really pushed on and both forwards and backs playing superbly they pushed on to get a well-deserved win. Thanks to Chloe and Nicola for all their work throughout the year.
