Davitts Social – Review

Davitts GAA Club held a very successful and enjoyable Social in Bourke’s on Tuesday night. Medal presentations were made to the intermediate team (Michael Walsh League Winners) and the Under-21’s (Brennan Cup Winners). Player of the year awards went to Colm Boyle (intermediate), Johnno Clarke (U-21) and Mark Diskin (junior). John A. Noone was a very popular recipient of the Clubman of the year award while former great, the legendary Tom Carey entered the club’s Hall of Fame.

Liam Griffin just pipped Ronan McNamara, Pat Moran, Keith Glynn, Frank Clarke and Michael Mooney Snr. as the night’s best male dancer while Gretta McManus retained the female version, fending off the strong challenge of Olive Treacy, Bernie Stephens, Rose Kearns and birthday girl Marian McHugh. Ronan Kirrane was an almost flawless MC while star senior player Frankie Barrett could only look on in admiration as dad PJ played music to please all tastes. Thanks to Sean Bourke and his efficient staff for their sterling work throughout the night.

A selection of photo’s from the night will be posted in the coming days…

Last year’s event was a night not to forget however, most people who attended couldn’t remember anything for days! This year, following the sit down meal will be live music, and after that PJ ‘The DJ’ will be banging out the tunes (?) into the wee hours. Medal presentations will be made to the U-21 and Senior teams who won the Brennan Cup and Walsh Cup, respectively. Clubman of the Year award will also be presented to John A. Noone for his Trojan contribution to the club throughout 2010. Tickets are €15 and are on sale now or can be purchased at the door on the night.

Guess Who???

Who could this pretty girl be? My, what lovely curls she has.

Here’s a few hints for those of you who don’t recognise those poultry legs…

This photo came from a newspaper clipping from the early/mid 90’s.

You mightn’t think it from looking at this, but the person pictured was a prominent player for Davitts at all grades and even played on the legendary 3-in-a-row County U-21 winning teams in the 80’s.
