Ballinderry Shamrocks GAC were in high spirits at the weekend as the team celebrated the end of a highly successful club season which saw the Derry and Ulster champions progress to the All-Ireland club semi finals.
Proprietor of Belfast’s Malone Lodge Hotel, Brian Macklin, welcomed his native team to the hotel to share in an evening of celebration which saw over 300 friends of the Shamrocks enjoy a four course meal and entertainment in the newly refurbished Deramore Suite.
Understandably proud of his team, Brian Macklin commented: “The boys have had an absolutely fantastic season.”
“They did themselves and all of their supporters proud, not only beating off Glenswilly to become this season’s Ulster Club Champions, but also securing a place in the All-Ireland semi finals where they will play St. Vincent’s in February. It was only right that we threw a party to mark their success and wish them all the best for the semi finals next month.”
