Here's a few words from James on the event:

Thanks to you all but the club is only as good as the members and as I was the chairman, it was a great help to me.
Last night, it was nice to see past members there, Pat Mooney and Jock Egan and of course the two Brothers Ger and Derek and nephew Ian.
The room named after me is great, a big thanks to all. The football changing rooms look great and the room upstairs.
The Centre is still the best in the county and the field as well.
Well done to all Ron and the Executive and the clubs members.
Again a big Thanks.
I am only a call away if needed. James.
