Arrangements are now finalised for the social highlight of the year in the club, the Annual Club Dinner, which will be held in the Sligo Park Hotel on Sunday May 4th, and which this year is being sponsored by AIB. This promises to be a gala occasion, and the special guest speaker, Anthony Foley, truly a living rugby legend, is very much looking forward to his visit to Sligo.
Tickets for the event are now on sale [at 60 euro each], and with numbers being limited by the hotel, early purchase is recommended to avoid disappointment. All bookings must be accompanied by the requisite cash/cheque, and tickets are being sold on a strictly ”first come, first served basis”. Tickets may be obtained from any member of the Organising Committee; Billy Leahy [Chair.] , Clare Storey, Mary O’Hehir, Orla Gilligan or Niall Draper , or from club President, Tom Gilligan .
Among the highlights of the evening will be the presentations by Anthony Foley of the Hall of Fame Award, the Senior Player of the Year, and the Youth Player of the Year, while Senator Geraldine Feeney will present the Frank Feeney Memorial Club Person of the Year Award.
