Durlas Óg – Thurles Juvenile GAA Club – Celebrating 30 Years

all-ireland-champions-2-copyDurlas Óg, the juvenile G.A.A. club serving the parish of Thurles, will celebrate its 30th anniversary this year.

The club was founded at an Inaugural Meeting on the 2nd February 1979 at the historic Haye’s Hotel here in the town.

To mark this, the 30th anniversary of its foundation, Durlas Óg  will host a function in The Premier Hall, Thurles,  on Saturday 7th February 2009.

This club has come a long way since 1979 and now enjoy the status of being one of the most targeted clubs to beat at both Mid and County level. Since its foundation it has had a remarkable run of success. County titles have been won at Under 12, Under 14 and Under 16 levels in both football and hurling.

In 1990 Durlas Óg won the All Ireland Division 1 Feile na nGael title becoming the only Tipperary club ever to win this competition outright.

Saturday 7th February is a date to keep free in your diary and all former players, officers, committee members, mentors and supporters are invited to this very special night for Durlas Óg. So many players have passed through this club since 1979 it would be only fitting, if as many as possible could made a special effort to attend and thus make this a night to remember.
