The Hillgrove Hotel Monaghan was the place to be on Saturday night. It was great to see over 300 Galbally Gaels in attendance to celebrate the club’s success in 2019. The place was decked in blue and white and everyone was in great spirits. Our MC Noel McGinn entertained everyone throughout the night. Michael Kerr provided a great speech to the audience and applauded Galbally’s success and the brilliant facilities we have and how proud we should be. Our guest speaker Malachy O’Rourke reminded us all to savour the memories of our success as they don’t come around too easy. He highlighted to our senior panel to stay positive and great things can continue to happen, you just have to believe in yourself. We would like to thank Noel, Michael and Malachy for attending our Celebrations Banquet. Nearly 50 footballers and 6 management teams graced the stage to receive their medals, everyone in the squad received a gracious applause from the audience. We are extremely proud of everyone in the Senior and Reserve 2019 teams. With this being said we encourage everyone to come out and support the lads in a few weeks time as the 2020 league campaign kicks off.
