Peter Canavan Visit
One of the greatest Gaelic Footballers of all time was in Glenfarne on Friday night last to present medals to a number of our successful underage teams. Peter Canavan presented medals to the 2005 U-16 9-a-side Championship winners, to the 2004 U-16 9-a-side League winners and to the 2004 U-14 9-a-side League winners. A great night was had by all who attended the function with the question and answers session at the beginning with Peter proving to be very popular with young and old alike. Thank you to everyone who helped organize the night especially those who had the Rainbow looking very well and to those who prepared the refreshments.
