Our U15 players were presented with their medals for winning the county finals in hurling and football. The medals were presented by Michael Brick Walsh, Shane Aherne and Tommy Connors. This was a tremendous achievement for these players to do the double. The future looks good.

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.
