Lancashire Function for Tadhg Meehan

Thank you to all the St. Brendan’s members and the Lancashire clubs who attended the Point at the Lancashire Cricket Ground last Saturday for Tadhg Meehan’s function.  The club would like to thank Kieron Gleeson, Sean Hopkins, Paul Tolan, Sean Hackett and the Lancashire CB for organising an excellent night. 
Tadhg had a fantastic night with all his friends, former work colleagues and family present.  He was presented with many gifts including a crafted Lancashire crest and a framed Galway Jersey signed by all the Galway Senior Football team including his nephew Michael Meehan.  Special guests on the night included Brendie Brien from BPC and Aogan O Fearghail from Ulster PC.  St. Brendan’s would like to thank Tadgh for his involvement with St. Brendan’s down the years, as he fulfilled many roles including Chairman and Secretary.

St. Patrick’s Day Parade

The club will be participating again in the St. Patrick’s Parade, which falls on 17th March this year and we will be looking for volunteers to help out in preparing a float for what should be a busy day in Manchester.  More details on the festival can be found at
