Social night for our underage heros

The club held its’ prize giving night for our under 12 winning teams of 2010 in Mahoneys on Sunday evening. It was a very well attended and enjoyable for players and parents and thanks to all for attending. Chairman Darren Ruane got the proceedings started and thanked the very dedicated bunch of players who showed that hard work is rewarded on the field. David Mahoney presented the football medals to the members of that panel and Bart Barrins presented the hurlers with their medals. After the presentations the players were given a celebratory meal from Muddy Burns and the parents and supporters had finger food. A lovely evening was had by all and all are ready to get started in the next few weeks for 2011.



The first fixtures for the new year have appeared on the website. It appears that the first game for the group is to take place the weekend of February 5/6. More details next week.
