Writing our history!
Sons of St Nicholas.
Many years ago, this fantastic book was written, produced & printed within our club. About our club.
If you are one of the few to be in possession of the book, you will understand it’s importance to our club, our heritage, and our history.
And the importance of continuing to capture our history on paper for the generations to come.
Almost 40 years on, as a club, we have decided it is time to write the next chapter!
We have developed a subcommittee, our club history group, who are tasked with compiling, writing, developing, printing & publishing the next volume of “Sons of St Nicholas”, which will cover the history of gaa sports in Dunlavin from 1984 to present day.
We hope to capture all strands of the Gaa within Dunlavin, Camogie, Hurling, Handball, Football & Rounders from juveniles to adult level in all & including our primary & secondary schools’ history also.
Work has already begun, and as part of our research, we are asking for help from all within our club & community, & our friends near & far!
If you or anyone you know may have submissions such as photos, newspaper articles, agm reports, match reports, fixture lists, related documents etc from 1984 onwards which could be used in the book, we would be delighted to include them. We welcome all support in order to help us gather as much information as possible.
If you wish to submit anything in person, copies only please, call or text Dorrie Clarke 086 4024539 or Eddie Whelan 087 2917987, we can copy the items for you or alternatively items can be emailed to Pro.firstname.lastname@example.org or message us directly.
All help with this project is greatly appreciated & hopefully, the end result will be a treasure trove of information & history, never to be forgotten, for generations to come.
