We held our presentation night in the clubrooms on Sunday night. Medals were presented to the successful minor hurling team as well as the minor footballers who won the league, the senior team who captured the Owen Ward Cup and also our Reserve team who won the Crawley Cup. The Senior Player of the Year was awarded to Colin Duffy, while the Reserve Player of the Year award went to Kevin Ward, with Conor Boyle being presented with the Young Player of the Year Award. Congratulations to all our medal recipients and particularly to the three recipients of the Players of the Year awards, they were worthy and popular winners.
