  1. In the Polredmond district there was a great stone-thrower in former times. His name was Thomas Quinn of Kildaree, Williamstown, Co. Galway. He was a very strong man and there was no man to equal him in stone-throwing. Also in the Polredmond district there were two boys which were swift runners. One of the boys names was James Kelly of Lower Polredmond, Williamstown, Co. Galway, and the other Patrick Quinn of Kildaree, Williamstown, Co. Galway. Those two boys won valuable prizes under the G.A.A. rules. They are still living and in good health.
