Throwback Thursday – Centenary Year 2006!

This week we are taking a look to this time 10 years ago when the height of the club’s Centenary celebrations were in full swing.  The Homecoming weekend and Official Opening of the new sports Pavilion at St.Mary’s Park Beragh between July 28th-30th 2006, marking a highpoint in a year of celebrations in the club’s Centenary Year.

It proved to be an immensely satisfying weekend for all associated with the Red Knights club as a series of activities over the course of three days marked the culmination of months of caring planning.
An exhibition of club memorabilia featured, a BBQ, concert and funday, Breacach Handball Club hosted a top class exhibition match, this was followed by a special re-union football match between the Tyrone 1995 All-Ireland finalist team and the Beragh side which progressed to the Senior Championship semi-final in 1996.
The high point of the weekend was the Offical Opening of the new Sports Pavilion and Clubrooms by the GAA President, Nicky Brennan and Ladies GAA President, Geraldine Giles and other dignitories for the unveiling of the commemorative plaque.

Also included included in this photo album are photos from the launch of the centenary year celebrations on St.Patrick’s Day 2006 which included a parade to St.Mary’s Park, an exhinition of club memorabilia, In the evening a highly enjoyable Variery Concert in the community room and the launch of the club’s first website.
