THE NEWLY-ACQUIRED Under-19 hurling Division 3 championship trophy will no doubt be on prominent display when St. Mary’s (Rosslare) celebrate a special occasion at their impressive facilities in Tagoat on Saturday.
The centrepiece of a busy afternoon and early evening of activities will be the official launch of their club history book.
Compiled by Larry Byrne and edited by Brendan Furlong, this impressive publication is sure to be snapped up by eager readers as it contains a full review of all aspects of the club since its foundation in 1886.
It recalls the good and not so good times the club has experienced, a story of commitment, survival and progress to now becoming a most progressive outfit with a very bright future as the numbers of boys and girls playing the games continue to flourish.
Saturday’s activities will commence from 4 to 5 p.m. with a series of blitz matches involving those young members.
The history book will be officially launched by the one and only Liam Griffin - a proud member of St. Mary’s (Rosslare) - at 5.15 p.m., before the official opening of the club’s walkway is held at 5.30 p.m.
The Community Hub room will also be formally opened at 5.45 p.m., and there is sure to be a lot of laughs and fun when a re-enactment of a hurling game of the past brings proceedings to a close at 6 p.m.
St. Mary’s (Rosslare) officials would love to see their friends from other clubs popping down to wish them well, and a warm welcome is guaranteed for everybody in Tagoat on Saturday.
