JOINT CELEBRATORY SOCIAL
Last Friday night March 17th, Lismore Gaa held it's joint celebratory social in the revamped Community Centre, and what a night it turned out to be. From start to finish this was a professional an event that we as a club has ever undertaken and hat's off to everyone that made this night the success it turned out to be. What a transformation from the Community Centre we all know of on a daily basis to the astonishing ball room we entered on Friday night, all tables and chairs laid out to perfection , that seated up to 240 people on the night. Everyone present were welcomed by the Club Chairman Jimmy O Gorman, which was followed later by our next speaker on the night Mr. Liam Lenihan Munster Council Vice Chairman. Our presentation to the 1991 & 1993 players was made by County Board Chairman P.J.Ryan who also spoke to all present. Before the final course of the meal Mr. Liam Lenihan presented our 2016 Intermediate Panel with their Western, County and Munster medals to great applause from all present.
Next came the social part of the night where people dusted off their shoes and showed some fancy footwork or not on the dance floor with music provided by " Quick Step", followed a few hours later by a disco with D J Liam O Gorman doing a fantastic job in keeping everyone happy on the dance floor.
These nights don't just happen of their own accord. A lot of voluntary work goes into them in order for them to go alright on the night. So i won't be mentioning any people individually but they know who they are so well done to everyone who did any bit of work big or small, your input is most appreciated and the positive feedback from everyone is proof of this.
Thanks to Ml. O Leary of "The Red House" and his staff who were very professional on the night. Special mention to Kearney's Catering, Tallow and all of his staff on duty who served up a piping hot three course meal on the night. Again very professional and well done.
Our scheduled raffle had to be postponed until Saturday evening due to unforseen circumstances, but what a fantastic response we got for these raffle tickets. Sincere thanks to everyone who purchased a ticket for this fundraiser, to the sponsors who gave so generously the prizes that were up for grabs, and to Laura & Wl. Roche Centra, & Mike & Joan Houlihan Mace , who allowed members of the committee to sell tickets outside their premises on the weekend before the social.
