Auction & Social Night
Kilruane MacDonaghs Senior, Camogie and Juvenile Clubs would like to thank everybody who played any part in making the Auction and Social Night such a phenomenal success. It was the most successful fundraiser ever organised by the clubs. We had tremendous support from individuals, businesses and companies who donated so generously to the auction. The response surpassed even the most optimistic expectations. Thanks to all club members who enthusiastically embraced this venture. The commitment and dedication of our hardworking volunteers bore fruit. Thanks to all who carried out their duties on the night. A particular word of thanks to our Auctioneer Seamus Costello who conducted proceedings in his own inimitable way. The Abbey Court was packed to capacity for the occasion. Thanks to all who attended and bid for the 340 lots on offer.
Congratulations to Annie Corcoran who won €200 in the County Draw.
Sympathy is extended to the family of the late Brendan Ryan, Navan and formerly of Cloughkeating. Brendan played on the U15 hurling team that won the North Rural and Urban/Rural titles in 1971. Two years later he won a divisional minor hurling medal with MacDonaghs. In 1976 Brendan won North and county U21 hurling medals. Brendan moved to Navan in the late seventies where he worked as a metalwork teacher. He threw his lot in with the Navan O’Mahony’s club, winning county senior hurling medals in 1985 and 1986, later adding an intermediate medal. Brendan also played with the Meath county team. At his funeral arrived back to Cloughjordan his coffin was draped in the MacDonaghs and Navan O’Mahony’s colours and club members formed a guard of honour. Sympathy is also extended to the Lillis family on the death of Margaret Lillis, Cangort Park, Shinrone and to Geraldine Williams, Ballyhasty on the death of her brother Dick Quinn, Carrig, Birr.
