1977 REUNION: “The Stacks are Back, The Stacks are Back, Let the Railway End go Barmy, Hill 16 has never seen the Likes of Joe Joe’s Army’ – so sang the Rockie supporters 40 years ago and this Saturday night (Dec 2nd) in the Stacks Club that famous All Ireland Club Championship winning team will be remembered and honoured. The line-up will be to quote another Rocky legend Martin ‘Bracker’ O’Regan quite simply a ‘Galaxy of Stars’. MC for the evening will be Radio Kerry’s Terrace Talk Presenter Tim Moynihan and we are delighted to confirm that our Juvenile Club President and Club PRO back in 1977 – Michéal Hayes will make the players presentations. We will also have video footage from the 1976 Co. Final and the All Ireland Club final of ’77. Throw in will be 8pm – it’s going to be a very special evening of great nostalgia and fun and we hope that as many members as possible will join us – a night not to be missed.

MÁIRE BEAN UÍ GHRÍOFA: Cúis mhór bhróin do bhaill Chraobh Thrá Lí agus do bhaill Chomhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann is ea imeacht Mháire (Bean) Uí Ghríofa ar Shlí na Fírinne. Duine de bhunaitheoirí na craoibhe ab ea í agus bhí sí dílis d’aidhmeanna CCÉ ar feadh a saoil fhada thorthúil. She was always willing to freely give of her time to direct and advise ceoltóirí óga. On several occasions she helped young Austin Stack Club musicians in their preparations for Scór na nÓg. Bhí sí i gcónaí sásta an Ghaolainn a chur chun cinn agus, gan dabht, í a labhairt.
Bhí creideamh láidir aici….í dílis d’Aifreann Dé agus don gCoróin Mhuire go lá a báis.
Leaba i measc na Naomh is na nAingeal go
Thanks to our Scór Officer and Juvenile PRO, Brian Caball for the above tribute.
