   Clontibret Camogie News

It was very much a case of ‘full house’ in the Westenra Arms on Saturday night last as camógs of all ages, parents and supporters celebrated the achievements of 2011.

Club Cathaoirleach, Shauna McElvaney and Treasurer, Marie Greenan, left no stone unturned to ensure everyone had a thoroughly enjoyable night, commencing with a delicious buffet, a very humorous power-point presentation, the presentation of awards and medals and finally dancing to ‘Tiger Named Alf’.

Gerry McQuaid, our guest-of-honour, travelled all the way from Wexford and was accompanied by his wife Mag, and his Mum. Not only that, but, to everyone’s delight, he brought with him the O Duffy Cup and a hurl signed by every player on the Wexford All-Ireland Senior and Intermediate camogie teams. Such a gentleman!

Considering the revelries went on much later than anticipated – indeed into the ‘wee’ small hours for many – it is fair to say the event was a resounding success. Many thanks to all those who organised and supported the event, in any way.

The club was absolutely delighted to have Tara, Angela and Helen fly home from England for the occasion and a toast was raised to Michaela in New Zealand who was in touch with a number of the girls during the night.

Congratulations to Aisling Greenan who was deservedly awarded ‘Senior Player of the Year 2011’.

‘Rith 2012’, an 8 day national, relay event, will arrive in Clontibret at 6.15 pm on Saturday evening. Club members are asked to meet at the St.Colman’s Church/Ballybay turn junction at 6pm sharp where they will receive the baton, carry it through the village before handing it over to the pupils of Scoil Mhuire who will carry it as far as the turn to the Community Centre. There, it will be passed to members of the local GAA club. Parents of players in second level education will receive a letter about this event in the coming days.

Thanks to the Greenan family who were out in force at the County Board meeting on Monday night – Catherine and Marie as Board officers, Aisling as the club delegate. A report will be presented at senior training.

Please note senior training takes place on Saturday evening at 5pm immediately after Mum Without Me which will commence at 4pm. Underage training continues each Tuesday evening in the Community Centre at 6pm and many thanks to Marie and Shauna for their assistance this week.

Finally the club has received a consignment of new helmets from Mycro Sportsgear. Anyone wishing to purchase same can contact any of the coaches or officers.
