Trip to Croke Park.
Piaras O'Se from Ballygriffey, Ruan recently won a trip to Croke Park for forty children and ten parents from his local G.A.A. Club, sponsored by Centra. On Monday, 19th Oct. last they left Lynch's Centra in Ennis, accompanied by two Centra employees, Mary & Catherine, armed with their hurleys, boots and helmets and a healthy goodie bag each. On arrival they were met by their guide, Morgan, who looked after them for the day.
They met county and inter county players, including Pat Donnellan, Conor Lehane and, retired great, Henry Shefflin, who joined them in a training session on the hallowed grounds of Croke Park.
They were treated to lunch and having played games and done some souvenir shopping, they returned tired but thrilled with their day's outing.
