Galbally’s Strictly Come Dancing.
The 12th of march has finally come upon us and has passed in flying colors for everyone involved with the GAA club. All the preparations and planning and sacrifices was all worth it in the end when you could see the results and outcomes of the night, it was fantastically executed, ran efficiently and the support was second to none.
An attendance of nearly 900 people where packed in with excitement in The Aherlow House Hotel to see the show of 16 couples and the interval act in which i myself was involved in and some of the successful U21 football team who won the A County Football Championship at the end of last year. The couples where all brilliant and everyone of them in there own right where winners. The actual winners on the night where Patrick Sweeney from local neighboring club Ballylanders and Aoife who is a local girl who is getting married to one of the main families in the GAA, the Cussens.
As the event was the clubs fundraiser for the year on the money side of things it was very important and the support was massive. Over €25,000 was raised which is all going to the clubs funds. Galbally showed how strong of a club it was with the organisation and the type of workers and bond we have as a club to prepare and run a fundraiser in the way we did. Hopefully next years fundraiser is as successful and its another enjoyable year for all..
