Official opening of the clubhouse, 30 October 1989
Last week we uploaded a booklet that was published in 1942 to celebrate the official opening of MacDonagh Park and following some very positive feedback we have decided to upload a copy of the programme that was produced to coincide with the official opening of our clubhouse in October 1989. That day Offaly, the reigning Leinster champions, played Tipperary, the reigning All-Ireland champions, in a challenge game that was attended by a large crowd. Tipperary won 2-15 to 0-11 with a young Michael Cleary bagging a personal tally of 0-5 while GAA president, John Dowling, officially opened the complex.
