Dear Colleagues ,
The long awaited visit of the Sam Maguire to the club is happening next Saturday the 12th December. Nobody needs to be reminded of that fantastic day in September when Brian Fenton wrote himself into GAA history. In Brian's rookie year he has won a league final, Leinster Final and not only did he win an All Ireland medal he won it in style by manning the engine room with a MAN OF THE MATCH performance on an All Ireland winning team and he capped it all off with a fantastic All Star award.
Next Saturday is our opportunity to show him how proud we are and express our gratitude to him for the tremendous honour he has bestowed on our club by his hard work, courage and commitment.
It was a fantastic moment in the club and for members worldwide when Brian won the all Ireland and then later that evening when he won the man of the match ,but of course he couldn't be there to witness the joy and pride that was in the club that night.
Next Saturday is an opportunity to bring this atmosphere to the club again and make it a enjoyable day for everyone but especially for Brian and his family.
Brian and Sam will be coming to the club at 2 pm and we ask that as many
members of all ages from Adult to Ogra will be available from 1.45 pm to
provide him his deserved Guard of Honour into the club. Please wear Raheny or
Dublin colours and bring as many flags as you have. Brian will be available for
photo opportunities from approx 2.pm until approx 6 pm .
Individual or family photographs will be available on a ticket allocation and Budgie Design will be available for anyone who would also like a professional photo opportunity.
Tea coffee and refreshments will be available during the day and we are asking
that parents and mentors would assist by bringing some baking /
Later on Saturday evening a top band will help us celebrate the occasion and
kick off the festive season in fellowship.
