for soon 'tis known from whence we came
where e'er we go they dread the name
of Garryowen in glory”

Friday, September 21st, 2018
Today 21st September 1958 our club and grounds  were officially opened.  After the formalities, speeches cutting of the tape great celebrations ensued.
A friendly game took place between Garryowen FC Captained by Gordon Wood  and Blackrock College RFC captained by C.Thomas.
It was a milestone decisson to move from the Markets Field. Great credit to the members and committee to have the foresight to take on this challange, because the new grounds was out in the country.  A small narrow boreen with no street lighting. The land for the first two pitches was purchased from the Quaid family.  Mick Quaid Snr played and was President of Garryowen. Billy his son played and was also President.
Niall and Michael also played for Garryowen .
That year D G ODonovan was President .Rory Liddy was Lord Mayor of Limerick.  Fr Guinane  SJ. Blessed the the the Grounds .
Thompsons architects oversaw the building of the clubhouse.
Some of the names I remember from that time.  Led by Sten Mathews, Mick Harty, Brendan Morgan,The Quilligans, Tommy Hanrahan.
 Meg Moloney,  John O Sullivan, Gerry Locke, Tiger OBrien, Johnny Baggott, Paddy and Paul OSullivan, Kevin and Mickey McCarty.
How proud of these men we are today.  And for me in year as your President, as I was one of a small band of young Ballinacurra  kids 
who picked buckets stones on the pitches, to see our club and grounds what we have today is wonderful.
So spare a thought to these wonderful people who have gone before us.  I on behalf of Garryowen FC, say thank you.
Ger Baggott, President Garryowen FC
