Medal Presentation and Social Banquet Night, Riverfront Hotel, Thursday 16th;
Congratulations and thank you to all our players and management teams who received their respective Division 2 winning medals and Junior Div 3 Championship winning medals at our club medal presentation and social banquet in the Riverfront Hotel on Thursday night. Thank you to all who attended and enjoyed the night.
The large attendance enjoyed a presentation to Britney Ardesne, our recent World Champion Bench Press Gold medallist in Dubai and future Para Olympian. Thank you to Packie Sheridan, who was a very popular guest, who presented our players with their medals. Thank you to Mickey McCann and Sean Gibney for presenting the player of the year awards. Congratulations to Evan Doughty (Male Players Player of the Year) and Lauren Carpenter (Female Player of the Year) on their respective awards.
A special thanks to the ever impressive Peter Murtagh, MC to the event, for his usual flair and relaxed humour. To Paul Taite who presented our developments plans, it became obvious that Paul has a budding career awaiting him on the comedy circuit. Many players breathed a sigh of relief when he eventually returned to script and then his seat.
A big thank you to those who worked so hard to make this event such a success; Fergus O Reilly, Paul Taite, Terry Farrelly, Tom Conachy, Sandra and Mickey McCann, Barry Monaghan, Marty Lynch. Thank you to our young helpers on the night; Ciara Carpenter, Ruth Smith, Cian Martin and Oisin Carolan. To the hard working Brenda Smith, Collette Smith, Fergal Kenny, Adrian Taite and Shane P O Reilly who worked tirelessly on the night and assuring that this event ran smoothly.
This event was superbly organised by Caroline, Paul, Jimmy and Antoinette Murray and all the staff in The Riverfront Hotel. Our night in the Riverfront will be remembered for many years. Special thanks to Caroline who demonstrated great professionalism and patience in dealing with the many unexpected guests!
