On a memorable evening at Christ the King Church Hall Tir Conaill Harps marked its 30th anniversary in grand style. The club brought together past and present members, supporters, and distinguished guests to commemorate three decades of Gaelic Football within the southside of Glasgow.

Former Chairperson Anton Gallagher took to the stage to recall the journey Tir Conaill Harps have been on, from humble beginnings to its current incarnation and the clubs standing as an important pillar of the community. Anton recounted some personal stories from his own time as a player in his younger days.

Current Chairperson Paul Toland then detailed the vision for the future, highlighting the club's commitment to growth, inclusivity, and continued excellence. With the hard work and efforts from the previous Chairperson and many other involved at the club Tir Conaill Harps are now in a stable position as a club and are primed to continue on the path of success and growth.

A special moment of the evening came with the presence of guest speaker Jerry O'Donovan, the Scottish Consul General of Ireland. In his speech, O'Donovan commended the club for its contribution to fostering cultural ties and community spirit, emphasizing the significance of sports in bridging gaps and building connections.
