Annual Dinner Dance 2019
Drumgoon GAA, celebrated their annual Dinner Dance, in the Errigal Country House Hotel, Cootehill on Friday 1st March. There were presentations to last years Reserve Championship winning team, the 1992 Under 17 winning team, Iar Uachtaran C.L.G. Aogan O’ Fearghail, outgoing Chairperson Roseanna Clarke, and the inaugural 1969 Camogie team celebrating, their 50th anniversary. In the thirties Drumgoon girls played camogie as the O’Leary club, Middle Chapel. There were also clubs in Maudabawn and Cootehill. However they faded away and it was at a meeting in Dernakesh Old School in April, 1969 that the current club was formed. The club has enjoyed great success over the years and there were never more girls in the parish playing camogie, than at present. Ena Clerkin thanked everyone for coming and reminisced on the early days of the club under the stewardship of Jack Daly, Eileen Shalvey and Mary Daly. Chairman Jimmy O’ Reilly thanked everyone who helped out in any way during the year, especially all of the players and trainers. He paid tribute to his pre-descessor Roseanna Clarke, on the tremendous work that she has done for the club over the years, and to all on the committee especially Margaret Hughes and Patricia Quinn, who work tirelessly for the club.
