Con Magees Gala Centenary Dinner

Thursday, 1 December 2016

JUST a couple of weeks after launching their Centenary Book, Con Magees GAC, Glenravel brought their Centenary Year celebrations to conclusion with a magnificent Gala Dinner in Ballymena's Tullyglass hotel.
Over 500 guests were treated to an evening of nostalgia celebrating past and present victories on the field and recognising the contribution of some very special club members.
Club Chairman, Seamus McMullan brought proceedings to order with a very short introductory speech thanking everyone for their attendance and recognising the generous sponsorship that various companies had given to help make the night possible.
That was to be the only speech of the evening; Con Magee's preferring instead to have personal and team interviews along with pre-recorded video clips woven throughout the evening between courses of a sumptuous meal served up by Gus and his excellent team in Tullyglass.
Compare for the evening was BBC presenter Thomas Niblock, a native of O'Donavan Rossa GAC, Magherafelt and he kept the entire audience spell bound with anecdotes and interviews that will be long remembered.
Two mobile video cameras beamed images to the large projection screens ensuring everyone present had a great view of proceedings for the evening.
