Dinner Dance

November 8, 2018

Our Annual Dinner Dance is on this weekend and it is just part of a long list of activities for the club as we enter the month of March.
The Dinner is to be held in Garryvoe Hotel on Saturday night March 3rd at 8.30pm. Music is by Wallstreet. At the time of writing there are tickets left but patrons are asked to contact any club officer ASAP if they still want to purchase tickets. 2006 on the playing fields didn’t yield much silverware but we still have plenty to celebrate. Brian Murphy won his third Munster Senior Hurling medal and also brought a first ever All Star Award to the club. Mike Carey and Liam Barry helped Cork Intermediate Hurlers win the All Ireland title. In the Scór GAA Talent competition we had several Divisional winners. On Saturday night we will be honoring the Junior ‘B’ Football team of 1981 which brought the first ever ‘B’ grade football championship title to the club. They say teams make their own luck, but sometimes you need the ‘rub of the green’ to win games. In the first round of the 1981 Junior ‘B’ Football championship campaign we looked like likely losers. Trailing by 1-5 to 1-4 against Ballinacurra with 50 seconds to go, a 30 yard free from Liam Cahill ended up in the net and we won 2-4 to 1-5. After this we beat Glenbower Rovers 1-9 to 1-6 in the quarter final. The semi final pitted us against Lisgoold. Second half goals from James Maye and Connie Barry helped us to a 2-5 to 0-7 win. The final was against Youghal in Midleton in October. Having lead by 0-4 to 0-2 at the break, we went on to win by 1-10 to 0-4. Tom Kearney became the first ever Bride Rovers player to captain a team to victory in an East Cork football championship.
