This Tournament is of course dedicated to the memory of Trevor Barrett who passed away after a short illness at the young age of 29 in April 2014. Trevor played both codes with the Club for many years. At one stage or another he played on all our three football teams – Senior, Junior B and Junior C. But Hurling was really his first love and he was an accomplished hurler. Over five seasons (2009-2013) he played a total of 84 games with The Hurlers, lining out in all six forward positions, though specializing in the No. 10 shirt. He was regularity one of the top scorers from play during each of those seasons, scoring some spectacular goals in the process. In season 2010, for example he was 2nd on the scoring list from play with a total of 7-21. The following year he was 3rd highest with 7-13 and in 2012 he clocked up a further 5-9. Never Forgotten. May he rest in peace.
