Quigley’s Point Swifts FC celebrate 50 years 04.1122

QUIGLEY’s Point Swifts FC turned 50 during the first lock-down. The big anniversary was only recently celebrated, on Friday 28th of October, with a long-anticipated dinner dance in the Point Inn. Senior and junior teams were presented with trophies from their success on the pitch.

Members, both young and old, of the football club came together after putting it all on hold for two years due to the Covid Pandemic. Everyone was very excited to be there, especially the children who have become great friends over the years.

After a delicious meal, Chairman Brian Rutherford and Public Relations Officer Sean Gallagher, took to the stage to welcome everyone and to thank the many volunteers who keep the club afloat. Quigley’s Point Swifts had a very successful year in terms of performance on the pitch and the players and coaches were thanked for their commitment and determination.

Special trophies went to Players of the Year, Most Improved and Player’s Player of the Year. There were also cups, shields and league cups presented to the winning and runners up teams of the Inishowen Youth and Schoolboys League.

The presentation was followed by dancing and chasing balloons around the dance floor to music provided by Liam Atcheson and Stephanie Pope. Sport brings people from all walks of life together and the festivities allowed everyone to have fun, catch up with friends and to reminisce about the good old days.
