Monster Thank You
Roscommon Gaels would like to give a huge thank you to all who attended the auction on Saturday last. A great day for the club and a massive effort was put in by a large number of club members. It is impossible to mention each person individually but in particular, thank you to Teresa Hession, who worked tirelessly to make the event a success. Also a special mention to Seamus, Nuala Diffley and all at REA Seamus Carthy’s offices who also put in an immense effort as did the entire committee.
The Auction would not have been possible without the large number of donations and sponsors. A very special thank you to all businesses and individuals for your generosity. Members are reminded that it is by shopping and dining locally that we can repay this kindness.
