Welcome
On Tuesday, we welcomed Liam, Chris and James from The Sports Chronicle to the club. Working on behalf of AIB GAA, they are currently travelling the length and breadth of the country visiting clubs who were involved in dramatic finals. The final they were focusing on regarding Crossmaglen Rangers was the All Ireland Final of 2007 where we drew, 1-11 a piece, against Kerry/Munster Champions, Dr Crokes.
They recorded interviews with Aaron and Oisin who spoke about their memories of that dramatic day and this piece will be aired at the end of December on AIB GAA and Sports Chronicle platforms.
