THERE was a packed clubhouse at Connolly Park on Friday night as Austin Stacks celebrated the players who won All-Ireland minor medals with Kerry down the years.

With the club celebrating its centenary and the minor competition finishing this year, it was a fitting time to honour the 27 players who have won 34 medals — from the sextet of John Paul Doyle, Frank O’Neill, Jimmy Gawksie Gorman, Eddie Barrett and Tim O’Sullivan and Brendan Reidy in 1931, to this year’s heroes; Ciaran O’Reilly, Michael Slattery and Dylan Casey.

Chairman of Austin Stacks GAA Club welcomed everyone and said occasions like these were very important to acknowledge the achievements of the past and present.

“To those representing family members from generations long past, it is important that those younger in age reflect upon, recognise and celebrate the achievements of these people, many from such staunch Rockie families as the Barretts, Reidys, Ryans Barrys, Gormans, Doyles and more,” he said.

Referring to the more recent All-Ireland medal winners of the past few years he said; “Keep in mind that when whatever chairman or administrator, in the decades and centuries to come, decide to update the history of the Rock, your names and achievements will be listed and never forgotten.”

MCs Timmy Sheehan and Andrew Morrissey did a great job in introducing and interviewing the players and afterwards there was food, music, a few drinks and a lot of talk about football in the bar.
