BOOK LAUNCH & 1972 50 YEAR CELEBRATION
‘A GAA AND SOCIAL HISTORY OF KILTEELY DROMKEEN’ by Bosco Ryan and Edmond O’Dea
We had a fantastic & memorable night in the hall to launch ‘A GAA & Social History of Kilteely Dromkeen’ book by Bosco Ryan and Edmond O’Dea. Preceding this we marked the 50th anniversary of the Kilteely Dromkeen 1972 county winning Junior Hurling team.
Also honoured were the 1969 East Junior Hurling Champions (Kilteely) as well as the 1970 and 1971 Dromkeen teams who all laid the foundations for the big breakthrough. A meal was enjoyed by the players and guests and Captain John Joe Bermingham cut the cake. Players were then presented with expertly crafted clocks and plaques. Pat ‘The Master’ O’Dea sang us his poem ‘The Boys of Kilteely/Dromkeen’ to a huge audience. Sean O’Dea and Brian O’Grady formally launched the book to great celebrations.
Thanks to all for attending and helping on the night. A huge amount of work went into organising and we are delighted with how it went.
Books are currently available in Kilteely (Aherns), Old Pallas (O’Dwyers), Pallasgreen (Centra) for €30 cash with more stockists to follow. Also available online at http://loughgur.com/shop/kilteely-dromkeen-journal. Happy reading!
