Last Sunday, the 8th, was a special Super Sunday for our juveniles…! The Rock Clubhouse in Connolly Park was filled to overflowing…We had a great gathering of Under 6/7/8/9/10 boys at the 11am session and Liam Lynch agus a chomhbhainisteoirí ensured that a wonderful and efficiently run presentation ceremony took place. Next up was the Girls Academy U6/8/10 with Una Moynihan and John Gutteridge orchestrating everything. Later that evening it’s was the older lads – with under 11/12 boys attending for their end-of-season presentation of justly deserved medals. B’é Dave Ó Scannláin a chuir na himreoirí i láthair an tslua and each boy received a rousing round of applause from parents, mentors and fellow warriors as he was presented with his now treasured medals.
Another great session of celebration was had later that evening at our Clubrooms in Connolly Park. Medals were presented to 51 talented players in the under 13/14 age bracket by none other than Kerry and Austin Stack Club legend, Mikey Sheehy, fresh from his Munster GAA Hall of Fame award presentation on the previous evening in Killarney. B’é Gene Ó Dónaill féin an fear an tí éifeachtach and he had a special word of praise/advice for each garsún as Mikey did the presenting. ‘Well done’ to Ian and his team for looking after everyone so well with his bia deas blasta!
