We held our annual gala race night in Bunkers Bar last Saturday night, the 28th December and a great night was had by all. We wish to thank all those who contributed to the club by sponsoring races and buying horses, as well as those who fluttered with the ‘tote’ on the night.
2014 is a landmark year for the Laune Rangers club, when we celebrate 125 years of championship football after Laune Rangers won the very first County Championship in 1889. It also marks the 25th anniversary of the 1989 Co Championship winning team. Preparations have now begun for the celebrations and we are looking for Laune Rangers memorabilia and photos that may be in houses around the parish to display on a night of celebration to be held early in the year. More details to follow in coming weeks but please keep eyes peeled for old photos etc that could be borrowed for use in our celebration year.
As part of our 125 year celebrations, you are invited to enter our very unique competition. Laune Rangers are offering all interested the chance to be a team selector….. to pick the team of the past 50 years! Entrants have the chance to pick what they think is the best team of GK, 6 Backs, 2 Midfielders, and 6 Forwards to have lined out for the club in championship football over the past 50 years. This is sure to create debate and discussions all over the parish so don’t miss out on your chance to have your say. To enter, all you have to do is pick up an entry form from Falveys, Bunkers, Francie Sheahans or O’Sheas Bars. Entries cost €5 and completed entries can be returned to the above or to Mulvihills Pharmacy.
Finally, Laune Rangers GAA club would like to wish all our members and their families very Happy and Prosperous New Year.
