Newbridge GAC Notes 28th February 2016

Gala Night 

Friday night past was the setting for a momentous occasion in the clubs history when 700 plus people, some from as far as America, ascended on the Tullyglass House Hotel to celebrate the 90th Anniversary of the clubs formation and Golden Anniversary of the 66&67 Championship winning teams.


A great night was had by all and the committee would once again like to take this opportunity to thank the organising committee, our sponsors, guest speaker former Uachtarán C.L.G Peter Quinn, the 66 & 67 championship winning teams, our 2 MC’s for the evening Gerry and Vincey and finally everyone who attended and contributed to making it such a memorable night. Lets hope the momentum generated over the past few months and Friday night will lead to a successful 2016!! Finally, videos shown at the Gala on the big screens have now been uploaded to the clubs facebook page.
