WIT GAA Club recently celebrated its 35th anniversary at a special ‘Gathering’ of many of its former players, club mentors/officials and members of the local community who have supported the club since its establishment.

MC on the night was well known GAA pundit Damien Lawlor who spoke to a diverse range of past players of their experiences and memories from their college playing days. Recalling various events and poignant moments included the club’s founding members namely Wexford’s Kevin Gahan and Niall Mc Donald along with Waterford’s Shane Aherne. Joining them was former Cork camogie player Mags Finn and Rosie Donnelly, a former ladies player from Co Louth and now a lecturer in WIT. Other players who regaled their experiences included Tipperary’s Eamon Corcoran and Ger Crosse, Limerick’s Ollie Moran, Waterford’s Pauric Fanning, who captained WIT first Fitzgibbon Cup winning team in 1992 and Kilkenny’s Brigid Mullally, captain of WIT’s first Ashbourne winning team in 1999 along with Cork ladies football star, Ann Marie Walsh and Colm Bonnar, team manager of several Fitzgibbon teams. In addition Waterford’s own and well known Irish rugby star, Niamh Briggs, Wexford’s Ursula Jacob and Lizzie Kent recalled some great memories from their playing days in WIT. The celebration also saw members of the 1992 Fitzgibbon winning team being presented with a specially designed polo shirt with more banter and chat until the small hours.

In conjunction with this wonderful event, the WIT GAA Club  has established an alumni to which will be used to communicate further events of this nature.

Here is to the next 35 years!
