The Hill Prepare (Day 41 Photo A Day 2012)

Derrytresk GFC was founded in 1903. Never in all the years since has this little club enjoyed such success and attention from the rest of the Gaelic world. What they have experienced as a club and community has been well documented else where but it is sufficient to say here that this experience will never be repeated. I was driving past their Social Club and field on today Saturday 11th February and I spotted a couple of club members Brian Fitzgerald and Conor O’Neill erecting a banner of support for the team. Conor will take to the field in Croke Park on Sunday as part of a team on the verge of making history. Derrytresk is festooned with flags, bunting and banners as well as the road signs and bus stops painted blue. From a dyed in the wool Rahilly can I wish them well on Sunday.
