Clubs 40th Anniversary Celebrations


Southern Gaels were formed in 1973 following the amalgamation of Athlone and Walderstown hurling clubs. The club will be celebrating their 40th anniversary in October. Arrangements are currently being made for a weekend of hurling when the adult team will play the Maher Cup final and the Under 10 side will play in the newly commissioned Frank Young Cup final. Frank was the main mover behind the formation of the club and was Chairman for the first thirteen years. In memory of Frank the club has taken this opportunity to instigate a tournament in his honour.

Anyone wishing to help with organising the events surrounding the celebrations please ring Chairman Kevin Jordan at 087 7989941
