Last Friday’s Shamrocks reunion drew a sizeable crowd to the K.G.K Hall in Knockanore and to the church for Mass earlier. As an exercise in getting together it went very well with everyone getting a chance to renew acquaintances and some were meeting up for the first time in a while. In the course of the evening presentations were made to Johnny Baldwin, on the occasion of his retirement as Treasurer of the club, to Colm Roche who was a member of the Waterford U-21 team that steamrolled their way to an All Ireland win, John Paul Lucey who was also a part of that panel, and our minor footballers received medals from their county title win in 2015.
The man who was responsible for organising the reunion was William Moloney who plies his trade these days in London. Will went to great lengths to make sure everything went smoothly, and we thank Will for all his efforts. From his point of view he wishes to thank all the following; Fr. Pat Condon P.P. and Mary Hayes for allowing the use of the Church, to Fr Shane O’ Neill for saying the mass, to Maeve and Doireann Ormonde, Emma, Stephen, and Rachel Roche, and Daniel Moloney for the prayers of the faithful, and Ivan O’ Neill for doing the readings. Thanks also to Na Seamroga C.L.G., Liam Ahearne, James Tobin, Ann O’ Keeffe, Elaine Ahearne, Kieran Ahearne, Mike O’ Neill, Martin O’ Keeffe, and everyone who helped out with the catering in the Hall after the mass. Antoine Lynch, Secretary of the Hall Committee, and Catherine who is the Secretary of the National School. Thanks also to photographer Bridget and Jim Aherne, and sponsor Angela Moloney USA.
