The Con and Annie Kirby stake commences this Saturday at Limerick Greyhound Stadium. Please go along to support the Galbally nominated dog. This is a competition that has been kind to us in the past and we sincerely thank JP and Noreen McManus for their generosity in supporting the event. The latest Split the Pot winner was Geraldine Cronin who was the lucky winner of €401. Next Draw in O’Connell’s bar on Saturday night next 23rd March.
Finally, Galbally GAA would like to offer our condolences to County Chairman John Cregan and Family on the premature loss of his daughter Mary after an illness. May she RIP.
