Stradbally GAA Club notes 19/03/18.
Please like and share these notes to help us grow our reach.
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.
