Issue 1234 – Glittering Gala Ball celebrates ‘extremely special year’ for St.Killian’s GAC

November 21, 2016 

St. Killian’s GAC Whitecross held a hugely successful Gala Ball in the Canal Court Hotel in Newry on Friday night.  The black-tie affair to celebrate the success of the club was also held in remembrance of the Reavey brothers 40th anniversary.
Club chairman and brother of the stricken men, Eugene Reavey, gave a welcome address on the night, outlining the highlights of “an extremely special year” for St.Killian’s with the senior team clinching the Armagh Intermediate Club Championship.
Congratulating the team, Eugene said their success had “infused all of us with immense pride and a great sense of community”  and he added that the club’s success coming in the 40th Anniversary year of the murder of his three brothers made his year as Chairman especially poignant.
Eugene movingly recalled his brothers’ love of football, their team and community and said he could think of no better way to commemorate them than the Armagh v Donegal match which took place on the occasion of their 40th Anniversary in January.
The club Chairman likened the supportive spirit that St. Killian’s footballers were surrounded by this year to the “immense support the Reavey family have received from our fellow Gaels over the years” and described it as a “testament to the kindness and integrity of all the people of Whitecross that 40 years on from such a great tragedy, we are here tonight celebrating the strength and success of our club.”
Guest speakers and panel discussion on the night featured “voice of Gaelic games” Micheal O Miurcheartaigh, RTE pundit and former and Derry Senior footballer, Joe Brolly, and former Armagh All Ireland winning manager and Triple All-Ireland Senior Club winning manager, Joe Kernan.
Irish Sports commentator and TV presenter, Marty Morrisey, was Master of Ceremonies at the momentous occasion which will be remembered for many years to come.
St.Killian’s GAC chose the Kevin Bell Repatriation Trust (KBRT) as its associated charity and will make a donation from funds raised at the Gala Ball to this very worthwhile cause.
