Best Wishes 

Everyone at Fr. Manning Gaels would like to congratulate Thomas Gill on the occasion of his retirement as the local CE supervisor. Thomas has been in the role for over 30 years and has always gone above and beyond the call of duty for the local area and the Fr. Manning Gaels club, ensuring that our grounds at Monaduff have been kept to the highest standard at all times. We would like also like to wish the incoming supervisor Francis McNerney the very best of luck. We are extremely appreciative of the work Thomas has put in over the decades and he will be greatly missed in this job but we know that he will continue to be a vital part of the club for many years to come, just as he always has been.
