Galway GFC Banquet 2004

The club held their annual banquet at the American legion Post in Newton on November 19th, 2004. The night was a great success, honouring Galway football club legend Jimmy Coyle for his amazing contribution and involvement with the club over the last thirty years. An excellent time was had by all who attended. Special congratulations is in order for Mike Newell, club man of the year, John Joe O'Neill, senior player of the year, and Declan "Butty" Ruane, junior player of the year. Honorable mention should also go to Pat O'Connell and Sean Keough, most drunkest people at the banquet. Here's to a successful 2005 lads!
