Not an easy task! The team work shown by all the cooks, servers, dishwashers, table cleaners & resetters was something any professional catering team would be proud of!
Thank you to anyone who sponsored the food for our Big Breakfast! The sheer volume of food donated by local businesses allowed us to provide such a wonderful banquet.

Our minors had to settle for a share of the spoils on Sunday when they travelled to Derrylaughan for their next round of the grade 1 league.
Both teams were evenly matched throughout the game and with some great passages of play produced by both teams it surely was a fantastic game played in a great sporting manner.
Galbally had some great performances in the defence from Conor Quinn, Marc Lennon, Darragh Corrigan & Dylan Mc Veigh with Kieran Holland and Cormaic Donnelly proving to be a handful for Derrylaughan at midfield with their continuous runs putting the opposition defence under pressure.
The Galbally forward line was lead by top scorer on the day Mark Donnelly with Caoimhin Quinn and Conor Donaghy also proving sharp in front of the posts and notching up some high scores.
Galbally Team & Scorers:- Dwayne Mulgrew, David Tally, Conor Quinn, Tiarnan Loughran, Darragh Corrigan, Dylan Mc Veigh, Marc Lennon (0-01), Cormaic Donnelly (0-02), Kieran Holland, Callum Kelly, Conor Donaghy (1-01), Darragh Traynor, Cathal Kelly, Caoimhin Quinn (1-04), Mark Donnelly (0-08)
