Ulster GAA President Michael Hasson (second from left), who was guest of honour at the 2016 McQuillan GAC dinner is seen here with the club’s new President Robbie Elliott (second from right) and former presidents Eddie Donnelly (L) and Brian McShane (R)
The role as Club President honours members who have put in a lifetime of service to McQuillan GAC Ballycastle.
The current president, and fifth in the club’s history, is Robbie Elliott who will serve a three year term.
John McIlwaine: “Believe it or not but all of 63 years ago Robbie Elliott was selected on a Rest of Ireland team, long before All Stars were even heard of. His love of the game endures and today he braved the bitingly cold wind in Cloughmills to see his beloved Ballycastle in action in the All County League. LEGEND”
Robbie served the club with great distinction and experienced county championship success in four different decades. Having won the first of his seven county championship titles in 1948, Robbie’s final county success came 25 years later in 1975 at the age of 44.
