HURLERS: Our Hurlers had their Christmas Party and Medal Presentation Night in the Clubhouse last Friday night (14th Dec) and, as usual with the Hurlers, a great night was had by all. One of the highlights of the evening was the announcement of the Players’ Player of the Year and very few were surprised with the selection. Yes, it was none other than Paul Daly who was presented with the Andy McAllen Memorial Shield. And Paul also received trophies for being the Management Team’s Player of the Year and the top scorer by a country mile. Well done again Paul and well done to the whole squad for another great season. And as Team Captain and MC for the night, Tadhg Meehan said – ‘onwards and upwards’.
