Chairman of Lissycasey GAA, Eamonn Finnucane makes a presentation to Cllr PJ Kelly (FF). 

LISSYCASEY honoured championship winning teams of the past and the village’s retiring county councillor at a function on Saturday evening.

Plenty of tales from days gone by and matches of yesteryear were recalled at Fanny O’Deas on Saturday night when Lissycasey GAA club honoured the 1971 junior championship and league winning teams along with members of the 1963 junior side which contested the championship final.

On the night, Chairman of Lissycasey GAA, Eamonn Finnucane made a presentation to former club secretary, PJ Kelly to mark his fifty years as an elected member of Clare County Council.

Cllr Kelly (FF) in February announced he would not be seeking re-election to the local authority and thus prepares to call the curtain on the longest present career in Clare politics which stretches back to his election in 1974.
