Former Kerry footballer Tómas Ó Sé visited Clonard GAA club last Saturday for what was a proud day for the club. He met with and trained the club’s adult and minor football panels and past on his wealth of knowledge to the players and encouraged them to keep training and commit to the club as they are the future of any club.
Tómas also met with 2 of the club’s great stalwarts Club President Joe Brennan and Club Vice President Larry Brennan
At a reception later in Clonard Community Centre Tomás spoke of how delighted he was to be in Clonard and meeting all involved with the club .He went to say that the club is the lifeblood of the organisation and whether it was in Wexford, Kerry or abroad the contribution that the GAA organisation made to the community was immense especially given the fact that it was based purely on the work of volunteers .
He also spoke of the honour of playing for Kerry and winning 5 All Ireland senior Football medals but some of his greatest achievements were in playing for his native An Gaeltacht and winning Senior Kerry County titles. One of his greatest disappointments however was when An Gaeltacht lost the 2004 All Ireland Senior Club final to Caltra of Galway by 1point.
He thanked the club for the help that he had received and wish all success for the future.
In recognition of his visit Tomás received a presentation from Club Chairman Ger Cashman.
Clonard GAA Club would like to thank Phonewatch Ireland for making Tomás’s visit possible .
