Cooney to attend Steelstown dinner

GAA President Christy Cooney will be the special guest speaker when Steelstown Brian Ogs hold their annual dinner dance in the Waterfoot Hotel on Friday, February 18th.

Mr. Cooney will be joined at the Ballyarnett club’s annual function by Derry County Chairman, John Keenan, and RTE pundit and Derry Journal columnist Joe Brolly to look back at a season in which the city club were within seconds of winning a first ever Derry Intermediate Championship.

On the night there will be music provided by ‘Off the Cuff’ as well as an auction with prizes such as a football signed by the 1993 All Ireland winning team inside a special presentation case. There will also a novelty ‘people auction’ which bidders have the opportunity to ‘buy’ some of the Steelstown players and members to perform cleaning tasks and odd jobs around the house!

Anyone interested in attending the event is urged to get their tickets as soon as possible as a full house is anticipated, for further information visit
