Dromin Athlacca GAA club would like to congratulate Simon and Pauline McAuliffe on their recent retirement from McAuliffes Bar. Both Simon and Pauline have played a pivotal role in our club and community over the years. When Simon was Chairperson of Dromin Athlacca GAA he saw our Club go from strength to strength and Paulines level of commitment to players was second to none. Their passion has been a tremendous driving force for our club and has helped in all our achievements to date. McAuliffes Bar has been a tremendous support to all in our community over the years and will be sorely missed. We express our heartfelt gratitude to Simon and Pauline and wish them every happiness in the next chapter of their lives
