first_imgThere promises to be many tall stories (and late tackles!) when Lagan Harps F.C. host their 40th Aniversary Dinner Dance in the Mt Errigal Hotel in Letterkenny.The club have undertaken this event to co-incide with the Donegal League 40th Aniversary season. After numerous discussions with older stalwards of the club and the community it was agreed to have this night in the Mount Errigal to bring all the community and the as many Lagan players past and present altogether under the one roof for one night.At the recent launch it was also great to see a whole host of former players present players and representatives from the ladies team and the underage there.And again the club are appealing for the local community to come out as nearly every house in the Lagan area have at one time had a player or players who represented the club.The idea on the night is to remember the past the people who worked hard to launch the club, the middle the people who sustained the club and the exciting future the club has with the addition of the very successful Ladies team and the whole host of underage the club have introduced in the past years. Having been talking to people like Aidan O Donnell snr, Dessie Gibson, Jack Crawford and John O Donnell you soon get to realise the number of players the club have put through the books over the past forty years.The club are appealing to the whole wider Lagan/Manor community for the support on the night. Lagan without the help of the locl community on a dialy basis and without the help of our sponsors down the years would never have survived.Over the past few weeks the number of old photos that have surfaced and old paper clipings has really got the community going.Even some of the club’s most senior members say it is surprising to see names appearing of people who played with the club at a very early time and never realised that they ever played football.The success of the club has risen dramatically in the recent years past with lots of success at underage and especially with the ladies team winning an all Ireland title. The senior men have also tasted recent success under Jason Gibsons management.Brid Mc Ginty has to take huge credit in the introduction of the ladies team and the work Brid has contributed is imense. Ernie Pollock, John Crawford, Seamus Crossan and all the other successful coaches and managent who put in the work free of charge to maintain the Lagan underage structure. The night itself will kickoff with a dinner reception at 8pm in the Mount Erragail and the music on the night will be provided by David Craig & The Regulators.Tickets are €25 and are available from any club member or by calling the following mobile numbers:0863696198 – Damien0872268916 – Ernie To conclude the club will greatly like to see as many past and present members players and anyone that wishes to attend what will be a lively and entertaining night.The club says it cant promise all the stories on the night will be true but the one thing we will promise is a god old fashioned Lagan night out!LET’S RAISE A GLASS TO LAGAN HARPS – 40 NOT OUT! was last modified: October 19th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:40th anniversaryLagan Harps FClast_img
