GAA President Horan set for Ardee St Marys 90th bash

GAA President John Horan

GAA President John Horan will be among the guests as Ardee St Marys GFC celebrate their 90th anniversary next week. 

Tickets are still available for the event which was originally scheduled for Saturday March 3rd in the Newgrange Hotel in Navan but was postponed due to the weather. It will now take place on Saturday March 24th at the Nuremore Hotel in Carrickmacross. 

However, despite the change of date and venue, GAA President Horan, elected in February 2017, will be in attendance to speak to address the crowd. 

Tickets for the event are €50 per person and will include a return bus journey from Ardee to the venue, sparkling wine on arrival, a fabulous four course meal -plus live music and a DJ to follow. 

The dress code is black tie for men and formal dress for women. For ticket information, contact any committee member.

Founded in 1928, Ardee St Marys are the biggest GAA club in the Ardee area and are based at their Pairc Mhuire home in the town itself.

They are historically the most successful side in Mid-Louth, winning 11 Louth Senior Football Championships. Their last triumph was back in 1995 when they beat St Patrick’s in Dromiskin.

The club fields boys juvenile sides at all age groups – including a double league and Championship winning minor team – and also has a ladies section that has teams from Under 8 all the way up to their adult team. It includes U10s, U12s, U14s, U16s and minor sides.

Former GAA President Aogán Ó Fearghaíl visited Ardee St Marys in late 2016 at the planting of a tree to commemorate the Louth 1957 All-Ireland Championship winning side which featured a number of players from the Marys including Patsy Coleman, Dermot O'Brien and Aidan Magennis.
