Our Club Social took place in the Park Hotel last Saturday the 10th of February where our Senior Footballers were presented with their county medals by parish Priest Fr Condon and was ably assisted by club legend Conor O’Brien who acted as MC for the evening. A fantastic evening was had by the large crowd in attendance, neighbors and friends were treated to an entertaining evening from our guest speaker Jason Ryan and they danced the night away to music from the excellent “Fews”. Jason reminded us of the tremendous commitment put in by all associated with Our County Champions and spoke very highly of the standards which are associated with wearing the Red and White of Stradbally. Our Chairman Tom Cunningham spoke about the club’s future and the ongoing work behind the scenes, it is the clubs ambition to have the second field operational by the end of this year. County Chairman Paddy Joe Ryan spoke very well about the importance of club and commended the unity of all clubs in the county in congratulating Ardmore in their recent All Ireland success. He also stressed the importance of football and football clubs in the county and gave a firm commitment to all in attendance that Waterford football would be represented in Munster club in 2018.
The club would like to thank all those who attended on the night and especially those who helped out with organizing this memorable night.
Stradbally GAA Senior Football County Championship winning panel 2017
Our St Patrick’s Day celebration took place last Saturday with over 120 people sitting down for a community lunch together. Children were entertained with Face painting and a kiddies Disco and the parent were able to sit back and enjoy the Ireland Match on a special erected big screen. The kids also met our Senior County Football champions and posed for photos with their hero’s. This was a tremendous community effort which was led by John Halpin and Trevor Curran who spent many hours up in the club ensuring everything was ready to go on the day. Lots of other people helped out and it really made for a fantastic experience for all those who attended, it was great to see so many new families in the club. Stradbally is a community club and this was evident on Saturday when young and old mixed together and had a great time.
