Ball Wall Bowling Fundraiser
Friday September 16th was bowling night for Southern Gaels and a great turnout ensured that everyone had a super time. The Bowling Alley was awash with Southern Gaels jerseys from 7.00 on with most of our younger bowlers coming straight from training. Their shooting and skill levels were excellent and some impressive scores were put on the boards. It was a pleasure to see so many of our players from all age groups playing and working together. The parents came in numbers too encouraging their offspring and helping with the chips, onion rings and sausages - such dedication is what makes this club the best! The much anticipated draw for the Joe Canning-signed hurleys was held at nine o'clock and the worthy winners were Oisín Flynn, Tom O'Keeffe and Cormac Bradley, Lorcan Farrell - nice that the four hurls went to three of our age groups. Once the dust settled on the juvenile event some serious swinging started as the adult teams took to the alleys. Up to 13 teams lined out for the competitive shoot-out but only one team could win on the night and that honour fell to Declan Finn, Martin Geary, Dermot Whelan and Gearóid Ó Duibhir who were the only team to break 400! A big thank you again to Planet for hosting the event and our great sponsors: Wines Direct, Sásta, Club Viva and Planet Athlone. The club draws for May, June, July and August were held to end the night and as it happened many of the winners were present which added to the high spirits all round. Thanks to all who turned up, took part, tasted the goodies and tried their best! Well done to the organisers and we're looking forward to the event next year already. Oh and well done to Bridie Gately (c/o Maeve Gately) who won the All-Ireland football tickets. Gaels Abú!
