More than 700 people attended the inaugural Hooley in the Park in Gusserane, enjoying music, food and the chance to catch up together as a community after the difficult past few years.

Crowds gathered in the field behind the GAA pitch to watch the Joe Davitt Showband and Green Road perform. 

"It went very well. It was the first year of us doing it as just after Covid we wanted to get the parish together,” said Gusserane GAA Club chairman Graham wall.

The hard work of the club committee paid off with 400 tickets sold up until the day before the event, with many more purchased on the day.

Families went and the day was a real opportunity for everyone to meet up together and celebrate the Gusserane community after successive lockdowns when such an event couldn’t have happened.

Everyone enjoyed barbecue food and refreshments, with children taken to the field to play hurling and football.

All the money raised on the day will pay for new nets and new goalmouths. Mr Wall said the committee has received great feedback after the event and aim to run it again in 2023. "It was a real club day and an awful lot of club members volunteered and helped out which
  we are very appreciative of.”
