County Final Meet and Greet.
A meet and greet of Our County Final Teams took place on Friday night last in Rhode GAA field. Over 100 boys and girls came to wish their heroes on the Rhode Senior and Junior B’ Teams the very best of luck in their individual finals. There was a great sense of pride and atmosphere felt around Fr. Dowling park on Friday night and the management and players are very appreciative of the support they get every day they go out in the Rhode Jersey. It was great to see so many smiles on the kids faces as they shook hands with the players and kicked a ball around with their friends. There was a special moment at the end where both teams wished each other the best of luck . The kids didn’t leave empty handed as they went home with some goodies. Thanks to all who made it a very special night especially to coaching Co-ordinator Stephen Darby, Minor Secretary Tracey,Murphy ,the co-operation of the players and management teams and to all who helped out on the night especially Eugene MCDermott who was on hand with his Camera to take a few photos and to Tom Hanlon from the Tullamore Tribune who was also present.
