Comhaltas will also perform on the night as well as some of the clubs under age members will also welcome the President with song, so the atmosphere will be perfect for the night.
Another highlight of the evening will be when Christy’s brother Brendan will address the crowd, so it will be great to hear the feelings of the Cooney family.
All in this should be a fantastic occasion for the Youghal club and for the Youghal and the surrounding areas and their Communities. The evening is an adult only affair and there will be refreshments served after the speeches.
It will certainly be a night when the most influential people in the GAA will be together under one roof and the people that Christy grew up with, his family and friends will be together to pay tribute to the man and the President Christy Cooney in their own special way.
