Dinner Dance Celebration
A great night was had at our Dinner Dance in the Bridge House Hotel on Friday night last. Congratulations to our Senior hurlers who were presented with their county championships medals by our special guest, Joe Brolly. Many of the team were collecting their fourth county medal in six years. A presentation of a brilliant collage of photos was then made to the management team on behalf of the club. We also had Hurler of the Year awards to be presented as selected by the management teams: Senior – Ger Healion, Intermediate – Shane Guinan and Junior – Daithi Guinan. Well done to all. Special thanks to our players and management, our guest of honour Joe Brolly for his fantastic stories and chat on the night, to Nora Kavanagh, Children’s Officer of the County Board for her lovely words, our Chairman Damian White who did the MC duties and to all our guests who attended on the night. Thank you to the Bridge House for their excellent food and hospitality on the night and to The Groomsmen who kept everyone dancing and entertained into the early hours. Thank you also to our loyal sponsors for their continued support of the club.
