posted 17 May 2015, 10:21 by Moneygall GAA   [ updated 10 Dec 2017, 11:51 ]
A series of events will be held over the coming months to celebrate and commemorate the 40th Anniversary of Moneygall's county championship victories in 1975 and 1976.  The organising committee are hoping that all players, wives, partners and friends will be able to join together to celebrate the achievements of those years, to renew friendships, and to remember team mates Billy Fanning, Billy McLeish, Mick Nolan and Kieran Costello.  This is the planned programme of events:

Saturday 20th June
A launch night will be held in Delaney’s Bar from 9pm, where refreshments will be served, and plans and suggestions for the Galway trip will be discussed.

Saturday 12th September
Evening mass in Dunkerrin will be celebrated for deceased team mates, mentors, club members and relatives, followed by a social night in Ollie’s Bar with refreshments, to continue the chats and finalise details of the Galway trip.

Tuesday 6th to Thursday 8th October
A reunion trip to Galway Bay Hotel in Salthill
Tuesday 6th - Arrival
Wednesday 7th - Private Group Dinner
Thursday 8th - Departure

Cost -
€120 per person sharing, including 2 nights B&B and group dinner.
€150 per person for a single room,
including 2 nights B&B and group dinner.

A provisional booking has been made and arrangements agreed with the hotel.  A booking deposit of
€50 per room can be paid to either Pat Sheedy or Seamus Ryan, joint treasurers.  We would like everybody to pay the deposit as soon as you can, so that a booking deposit can be paid to the hotel and give them an early indication of numbers and rooms required.  The balance of the cost is to be paid on check-out from the hotel.

We hope you will all be able to participate fully in the reunion events and that you will also encourage your friends to join with us.  We are certainly looking forward to meeting up with you all again.
