WE WANT YOUR MEMORIES

As we celebrate our 50th we want to hear your memories and see your old photos.  We are currently trying to scan and archive as many old photos and memories as we can so that we have a permanent resource.  No memory is too small, they are all so special so please send us your photos and your memories to pro.stcolmcilles.meath@gaa.ie   We can’t wait to hear from you

Can you name these two heartthrobs from 1995 – who had just beaten Duleek in the U13 Div 2 league final…. looking like they lost?

 

SUPREME ALL STARS

Congrats to our own Robbie O’Malley on being named an Irish Independent Supreme All-Star being the greatest right corner back of the All Star era.  A more than deserved honour Robbie is a legend in the true meaning of the word.  His exploits on the GAA field are well known but his contribution off it in leading Meath U21 and Meath Seniors to Leinster titles as a backroom member are as impressive but most impressive of all his unstinting charity work and making a difference in the lives of so many.  Well done again Robbie from all at the Cilles.

Congratulations to Vicki Wall 

Well done to Vicki  Wall, who was named Player of the Year on TG4′s ladies football awards programme, ‘Peil na mBan – Foirne na Bliana – le AIG Insurance,’ last weekend.
