‘THE GOOCH’ VISITS ARDFINNAN
What a wonderful day we had last Saturday as the boys and girls of the parish had the great Colm “The Gooch” Cooper lead them in a coaching session at our club grounds at Castlekeale. This all happened because of a wonderful prize that Annette Savage won after entering a competition with Eircom. The prize was a training session for a GAA Club with “the Gooch” and Annette included both boys and girls clubs in this wonderful event.
For once this summer the sun was shining and there was over 90 children involved in the session while there was also a big crowd of spectators there to see the great man in action. Colm proved to be a big hit with everyone. He was extremely kind and friendly, and seemed to give everyone time signing autographs and posing for pictures with the young and not so young. Many thanks to all who helped out in any way, from coaches to people who helped with the food and teas and everyone in between. A really great day was had by all concerned and I think it is a morning of football and fun which we will remember for a long time to come. Thanks again Annette!
