        Carrick Swan club was most pleased to welcome our GAA President Christy Cooney to our clubrooms on Saturday afternoon last where he unveiled plaque in memory of Paddy Boland who departed from us so suddenly just over a year ago. 

The President and all the other speakers spoke in glowing terms of Paddy and the lifelong service he gave to Carrick Swan and the GAA. We thank the President for making himself available on the day and all those who contributed to a wonderful occasion. We also thank all those who helped in any way with our preparations, the brass band for their attendance and the visiting juvenile clubs who participated in under 8 hurling tournament. 

We sincerely thank our ladies committee for their work over the week-end. The unveiling ceremony and juvenile tournament saw many visitors availing of the refreshments prepared and served by this hard working group and the visitors, and the club itself, is most appreciative of your efforts. 

Finally we thank Paddy’s wife Joan and the Boland family for allowing our club place permanent reminder of Paddy in our clubrooms, a place where Paddy had spent so much of his life.
