Whatever it is, people love looking back on old photos.

This week, for our Moment in Time, we head to Clough-Ballacolla direction as we look back at their Dinner Dance in 2010.

They were celebrating their successful 2009 season one that saw the club win an historic first Laois SHC title thanks to a final win over Portlaoise.

Indeed the win sparked the start of a glorious era for Clough-Ballacolla as they would win the championship again in 2011 and 2015 as well as appear in finals in 2012 and 2017.

They held their Dinner Dance in the local Hawthorn Community Centre, and it looked as if a great night was had by all.

Over 400 people were in attendance and Alf Harvey was on hand to capture a selection of great images.

Check out photos from the Dinner Dance from nine years ago.
