25 year Reunion of the 1992 County Intermediate Hurling Champions
A great night was had by the 1992 team in The Village Inn, Ashford on Friday last when they all gathered to relive that memorable year. They watched the Final again on DVD and enjoyed reminiscing about that great day. Each player and manager was presented with a plaque in memory of the occasion with a few facts and tales from the Mayor himself, Jim Mulcahy about each player. The night continued with food provided by Geraldine & Tom of the Village Inn and of course no occasion in Killeedy is complete without some music & songs.
