Dromtariffe GAA & Historical Book Launch

Dromtariffe GAA & Historical Book Launch.

All roads will lead to Dromtariffe Community Hall on Sunday December 4th, when Dromtariffe GAA will launch it’s latest club history.  Written by Dan Joe O’Keeffe and titled “In Praises of Dromtariffe”, the book describes the club’s long and illustrious story from its foundation in 1895 to 2020.  It is not simply just the adult-club’s story, but also that of the under-age, ladies and Scór, as well as other sections of interest.  The book will be launched by John Tarrant, well known sports reporter and local correspondent.  Here is an opportunity for Dromtariffe people, young and old, from near and far to meet, great and reminisce.  There will be music and song, along with light refreshments for all.  It is hoped that the book will also be of interest to those outside the Parish, as it relates many epic and well fought clashes between Dromtariffe and its various Duhallow opponents.  The book will retail at €25 and will be available to purchase at a number of local outlets.  This is a limited edition and may be pre-ordered by contacting any of the following:
