I am a native of Driney, Drumcong, and in my youth I played football for Kiltubrid. I am a member of the Leitrim Supporters Club, in Dublin. I am a founder member of Naomh Olaf, Hurling, Football and Camogie Club, in Sandyford, Dublin 16, which was founded in 1981.
I have compiled and edited a thirty year history of the Club entitled “Treasured Memories”. It is a hard back in full color, containing almost four hundred pages and more than two hundred and eighty photographs, many of them team pictures. Its contents include the remarkable story of the founding, success and development of a The highs and lows on the field of play in Football, Hurling, Ladies Football and Camogie. The building of a magnificent Club premises. The Clubs Annual Corporate Lunch in Croke Park. Details of off-field activities including Scór, a thriving Golf Society, the Clubs Annual Golf Classic. How the Club financed its development as well as many articles of special interest to G.A.A. people.
This book was launched by the then President of the G.A,A, Christy Cooney, on the 10th of December, 2011 and already almost eight hundred copies have been sold. It has been highly commended by many of its readers. The President Michael D. Higgins Officially opened a
new Pastoral Center, in Balally Parish recently and the Pastoral Centre Committee was pleased to present the President with a copy of the book
This book would be of interest to any G.A.A. member, but it would be of exceptional interest to any Club or individual who would be considering writing or compiling a history of their own Club, It costs €20 plus postage, if any.
