BRIDE ROVERS GAA CLUB NOTES.

 

VICTORY SOCIAL.

Our Victory Social and Medal Presentation took place in the Silver Springs Hotel on last Saturday night with as fine crowd present. Juvenile Club Chairman Mark O Connell and Senior Club Chairman co-hosted the very successful night. Our guest speakers were Jerry Walsh Rebel Og vice-chairman and Mark Sheehan Co. Board Vice Chairman. They both spoke in complimentary terms of the Bride Rovers Club and the successes of 2018. They also spoke of the Club Development in recent years and the role of the GAA Club in our Community. Both paid tribute to the great leadership given to Cork GAA by Gerard Lane who is now a Cork Delegate to the Munster Council. The Medals were presented to our under 14 hurlers who won the County Premier League defeating St Finbarrs in the Final captained by Adam Hayes. Next up were the Minor Hurlers who won the County Premier 2 Championship and League double captained by Conor Barry. Finally our under 21 Hurlers, East cork and County Champions were honoured- led by their captain Shane Walsh.

Tributes were paid to the Late Dan Quill for his tremendous work for the Club over many years. Club Chairman Richie O Regan made a special presentation to Gerard Lane as a token of appreciation for all the work he has done over several decades and his wife Theresa was presented with a bouquet of flowers. Fr O Donnell said Grace before and after the meal. Thanks to all who organised the event and all who donated raffle prizes

A great effort in horrendous conditions. Well done to both teams.
