The club were proud to honour two club stalwarts on Friday night with the titles of club Presidents. Both Pat McGrath, Newtown and Chris Cooney, Garranmore have given tireless service to the club over the years and it was with this in mind that they were honoured in front of  a large gathering of family, friends and fellow club members. We would like to thank them for their contribution to the club over the years.
