Kilruane MacDonaghs Notes 19-Oct-2016
The clubroom was bursting at the seams on last Friday night as Len Gaynor launched the updated club history “Kilruane MacDonaghs 1970-2013 Heirs to a Proud Tradition”. County chairman, Michael Bourke, North chairman, Dan Kennedy and North secretary, Marian Minehan, were in attendance. Kealan and Jack McGrath provided musical entertainment while Tom Williams gave a rousing rendition of “The Ballad of Thomas MacDonagh”. Bawney Hayes had the gathering in stitches as he recited “The Winning Goal”. Eamon O’Dwyer from Tipp FM was on hand to record an edition of his popular programme “Down Your Way”. Thanks to all who supplied the refreshments and to the ladies who looked after the catering on the night. The book, costing €30, is now on sale in the local shops in Cloughjordan and Sullivans, Ardcroney. You can also contact Gilbert Williams 087-2176452 to reserve your copy.
