In Praises of Dromtariffe charts history of famed club

Dromtariffe GAA launched its history “In Praises of Dromtariffe” in the presence of a large attendance in Dromtariffe Parish Hall. The club boasts a long and distinguished history of achievement on the playing field, the 592 page history edited by Dan Joe O’Keeffe offers nostalgia and reminiscing, former and current Dromtariffe GAA players, officers and supporters convened at the launch for this once in a lifetime colloquial occasion.

Founded in 1885, Dromtariffe has been at the heart of the GAA since its very inception. The club continues to grow and encourage a new generation to play gaelic games.

A History Committee headed by Mary Browne and joined by Michael Byrnes, Joe O’Riordan, Seán Feely, Frank Barry and  Dan Joe O’Keeffe ensured  the content  was meticulously researched, excellently structured  and illustrated with fascinating photographs and text on football, hurling, ladies football camogie and Scór.

Apart from the GAA, subjects also covered are the War of Independence to an insight on Dromtariffe’s patron saint Iníon Bhuí with fitting songs and poems added.

“In Praises of Dromtariffe” is available from Dromtariffe committee members and retail outlets in Dromagh, Cullen, Kanturk, Kilcorney, Millstreet and Newmarket.
