St. Brigid’s GAC 20th Anniversary celebration

St. Brigid’s GAC, Belfast celebrated their 20th Anniversary with an amazing gala dinner at the Titanic Centre on Saturday night. The guests at the dinner included, John Horan, president of the GAA, Kathleen Woods, President of the camogie Association, Marie Hickey, LGFA President, Michael Hasson, Ulster Council chairman and Collie Donnelly, Antrim County chairman.

The night raised £8,000 for charity with the Cormac Trust, Deter, MND, (Anto Finnegan) Motor neuron disease, the Kevin Bell Repatriation Trust and OPT for Life amongst the beneficiaries.

The club would like to thank all of those who helped make the night happen: from the brilliantly cool Mark Sidebottom as host, our three esteemed Presidents as guests – John Horan, Kathleen Woods and Marie Hickey – to all of our generous sponsors, the ever-patient staff at the Titanic, The James Peake Experience, Conor Moore, Patrick Coyle for his design of the tickets and posters…and, of course, Frank Cassidy and the organising sub-committee of Marc Murphy, Patricia Lundy, Martin McCarney, Helen Graham, Claire Finnegan, Dermot Dowling, Declan Canavan and Conall Cahill for their incredibly hard work these past weeks.

Last – but most certainly not least – a massive thanks to every one of you who attended and made the night such a special one.

Here’s to the next twenty years!!
