Out of Time

Tom (Cub) Walsh from Straffan, a leading GAA Kildare inter-county footballer, played with Ratoath Harps, but for his efforts, he was dropped from the Kildare panel because he played soccer. The Clubs first competitive win was achieved wearing Ratoath GAA jerseys. They were left without gear following a serious fire, which gutted Sonny Martins (manager) house, on Friday, 31st January 1969. However, the GAA Club rescued the soccer team.
