THE DAY THE ALL BLACKS CAME TO LETTERKENNY – TEN YEARS ON!

first_imgSome of the All Blacks are shown around by well-known Donegal man Robert Love.Letterkenny Rugby Club, Ramelton and County Donegal Ireland will celebrate 10 years on Nov 9th 2005 the visit of the “All Blacks” to our county. In this special feature, we look back at a very special time in Donegal sporting history.Ten years ago, a party of All Blacks led by captain Tana Umaga, visited the then undeveloped sports grounds at Letterkenny Rugby Club and named the rugby club’s pitches after Dave Gallaher, Ramelton, Co. Donegal born and New Zealands first ever Rugby captain.The visit, including a pilgrimage to Gallaher’s birthplace in the nearby village of Ramelton made headlines all over the world, and the club are very proud 10 years on that a ground worthy of their famous patron Dave Gallagher has been developed. The New Zealand Rugby Union president travelled to Ireland to view the new €1,500,000 pitch and clubhouse development that Letterkenny Rugby Club and the Letterkenny Gaels had undertaken.Legendary former All Black Bryan Williams unveiled a plaque in Dave Gallaher Park to officially open the shared rugby/GAA facility that is now one of the finest sports facilities in Ireland.A slightly younger-looking Roger Roulston ten years ago.Born in the village of Ramelton, five miles from Letterkenny, Dave Gallaher emigrated to New Zealand with his family as a boy. He became the first man to captain a team referred to as All Blacks in 1905 and is credited with helping make rugby the national sport of New Zealand.“Since the All Blacks left us 10 years ago, we have been working tirelessly to make the most of the legacy the All Black’s gave us. A new under-age structure exists within our club now and many of these young players were inspired to take up the game by our New Zealand connection,” said Denis Faulkner, Charirman of Letterkenny Rugby Club. “We are dedicated to continue to develop the clubs offering of the game and our facilities and remembering 10 years on we see that this historic visit has been instrumental to the personal & sporting development of all age groups and members young and old within our club”. We would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank our main sponsors, Kelly’s Toyota and all of our sponsors for their continued support for the club and with their help we can continue to deliver first class Rugby games and facilities for our players, members, sponsors and our visitors.”Here are some photos from the All Black visit to Letterkenny RFC and Ramelton in 2005.And we fondly remember in our thoughts, the late, great, Jerry Collins who officially named the Dave Gallaher Memorial Park, whose life and that of his wife were tragically recently taken.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OvoAwdbFDM0&feature=youtu.beLetterkenny Rugby Club in association with main sponsor Kelly’s Toyota, Port Rd., Letterkenny.THE DAY THE ALL BLACKS CAME TO LETTERKENNY – TEN YEARS ON! was last modified: November 8th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:All Blacksdonegalletterkennylast_img read more
