SOME 220 people turned out in force for Killarney Legion GAA Club’s spring party in the Killarney Plaza Hotel.

Honorary life member of the club Joanne O’Riordan was among those in attendance at the event, which paid tribute to the club’s high achievers in 2016.

Taking a bow were the award winners, Mairead O’Donoghue (senior ladies), Peter McCarthy (young player), KJ Griffin (junior player), Danny Sheahan (senior player), and Paul Trant (club person).

“This was our second spring party and we decided to change the format to a more relaxed social evening,” said club chairman Enda Walshe.

“One of the many highlights of the night was the speech made by Paul Trant, a mixture of wit and genuine and heart-warming thoughts about the club.

“We were delighted and privileged to once again have Joanne O’Riordan attend one of our functions. She has become a regular at games as well and we greatly appreciate her support and look forward to her visiting Derreen in the future.

“Well done to Brian Moriarty and his crew who did a great job making the night a huge success.”
