Millstreet / Duarigle Gaels Juvenile GAA Victory Social at Wallis Arms – Part 1

Recently at the Wallis Arms Hotel on two separate nights Millstreet / Duarigle Gaels Juvenile GAA celebrated with a superb Victory Social – on the Friday night with the younger members and on the Saturday night with the more senior players.  Here we share images from the first occasion where Sportsman Supreme, Kevin Crowley was the Guest of Honour who presented the wonderfully successful players with their medals.  The Disco which followed the meal, presentation and speeches – with very popular D.J. Kieran – was hugely enjoyed by the young players.  Great credit is due to the many dedicated Coaches and Coordinators.  Click on the images to enlarge.  (S.R.) And we share a further selection of pictures from the splendid annual occasion. continue reading the full article “Millstreet / Duarigle Gaels Juvenile GAA Victory Social at Wallis Arms – Part 1”

Winning the Style Stakes at Leopardstown Races

She almost didn’t come to the third day of the Leopardstown winter racing festival, but Gillian’s last minute decision to go ahead with her original plan to wear a Donegal tweed two piece she designed herself turned out to be a triumph in the keenly contested Cliff At Lyons Style Stakes.

Her peplum tweed jacket and longline skirt was accessorised with a Marc Millinery hat with pheasant feather, white shirt with jabot, cream patent Amy Huberman heels and vintage gloves and bag. The outfit was made by a polish dressmaker near her home and the family’s love of the hunting ‘n fishing county look was clear when they are jubilantly joined mum in the parade ring. Many congratulations to Gillian. continue reading the full article “Winning the Style Stakes at Leopardstown Races”

Vote for Eric’s Ballydesmond photo

Result: Eric’s photo won with 36% of the vote 🙂

SportsJOE have a competition as to who had the best amateur GAA images of 2016. From the middle-aged dad contemplating one more time round the GAA sun, to the fan asleep in the ditch, the umpire taking snaps in a blizzard or the TV-watching lamb.

Our own Eric Hickey is one of the final twelve with his photo that was “Taken April in Ballydesmond while I was umpire”.

He needs your votes to win the prize, so go to SportsJOE and vote for the “Ballydesmond Blizzard”. (He’s not doing too bad at the moment with 40% of the vote already).
