Supervalu Schools Competition – Thursday October 12th:
On the evening of Thursday, October 12th, we are gearing up for the exciting conclusion of the Claregalway GAA National Schools competition.
For the second consecutive year, we are extremely grateful for the continued support of Hughes Supervalu and Flynns Supervalu. We’d also like to extend our appreciation to Treat Café for generously providing tea and coffee during the event.
Last year, the final evening drew a massive crowd of parents, relations and friends to witness the talents of the players representing each of the seven participating schools: Claregalway National School, Claregalway Educate Together, Carnmore National School, Lackagh National School, Bawnmore National School, Cregmore National School, and Coolarne National School.
We extend our heartfelt thanks to all the boys’ and girls’ teams from these schools for their enthusiastic participation. We eagerly anticipate an outstanding evening of football on the 12th. Throw in times TBC but will be Circa 17:15 for the boys games and 18:15 for the girls.
Please keep an eye on our social media for updates.
As we are expecting a large crowd, we would ask that people carpool where possible.
Tom Wall – RIP
It is with great sadness that the Claregalway GAA Club and the Community of Claregalway heard of the death of Tom Wall in the past week.
Tom was born in Cahergowan, Claregalway in 1935 and grew up in a hurling family. He was known as a very skillful and speedy hurler and was frequently the last man to leave Hessions Field, which was the club’s pitch in that era.
Tom was the last surviving member of the Claregalway Hurling Team which won the County Junior Hurling title in 1952, defeating Eyrecourt in the final.
Tom works all his career in the Post office in Galway City, he is also fondly remembered for the great service he provided to the Credit Union in Mervue over the years. When Tom married, he moved to Renmore, there he became involved in the local GAA and was a leading figure in early development of the club. Tom was also a prominent referee at both club and school levels in Galway city and county. His passion for the GAA continued up to his final days with a love for following the games and results of all of the club matches.
Tom is predeceased by his Late Wife Maureen, brother Martin, sisters Sarah and Mary, son-in-law Liam Glynn and granddaughter Anna and will be sadly missed by his daughters Anne and Miriam, sons Michael and Joseph, daughter-in-law Maura Daly, son-in-law Seán Dunleavy, grandchildren Cáit, Moya, Ailbhe, Isobel, Emily, Katelyn, Grace, Daisey, Harry and Louis, sister Margaret, brother Harry, nieces, nephews, relatives, neighbours and a wide circle of friends.
