Celebration Banquet
We are just two weeks away until our night of celebrations.  Excitement is building, the committee is working away behind the scenes organising what will be a great night and one to remember. 
This Celebration Banquet is a strictly over 18 event.  Anyone under 18 looking to attend must be accompanied by their parents and have their ticket purchased by their parents.  Galbally Pearses will not accept any responsibility for anyone under the age of 18 attending the event.
Music will be provided by ‘The Miracles’, it’s sure to be a great night to celebrate all what Galbally Pearses achieved in 2019.
We waited 61 years to win a Championship, then we went and won both leagues with the Seniors and Reserves. If ever there was a year to celebrate our clubs achievements this is it.  It’s a night not to be missed!
