Youth Presentation 2011

The Youth Presentation night for the 2011 season took place in the function room of the Welcome Inn on the 20th of February. A large crowd turned out to pay tribute to the younger members of the club. We were also delighted to have the one and only Peter Canavan as our special guest.

The evening got underway with the girls presentations. Once again it had been a triumphant year for the girls.. The U14 girls were runners up in the league and received their medals. The under 16 and minor girls claimed both the league and championship titles respectively. Megan McManus accepted the U16 trophies on behalf of the team and Shauna Baxter did likewise for the Minor girls. The minors also competed in and won the Orla Bogue memorial Blitz for the second year in a row. Corinne Breen captained the team on the day and accepted the trophy on the teams behalf.

The focus then switched to the boys where once again hard work and dedication were duly rewarded. The under 14’s boys were winners of there league. Thomas Maguire accepted the league trophy as captain of the team. The minor boys who in the words of Manager Barry Maguire ‘Created a bit of History’ claimed the Minor Division 1 League title in what was a rst ever for the Club in a highly entertaining nal against Enniskillen.

Colman Corrigan stepped up as captain to accept the trophy on behalf of the team. Unfortunately the Gaels were to turn the tables in the Championship Semi-Final. Nevertheless, credit must go to all involved and the future looks bright for these players.

Awards were also handed out to the most improved players at each level. It was unanimously agreed by all managers that picking a recipient was an extremely di-cult decision. Congratulations go to the following winners; U12 girl; Orla Malanaphy, U14 girl; Orlaith Murphy, U16 girl; Ann Breen, U18 girl; Roisin O’Reilly, U12 boy; Ross Corrigan, U14 Boy; Jamie Owens, U16 Boy; Ciaran Breen and U18 Boy; Aaron Davis.

Peter Canavan thanked the Club for the invitation. He emphasised to the younger players the importance of respect in the GAA to themselves, their mentors and to opposing players and teams. Many thanks to all managers and coaches for volunteering there time to the Club. Hopefully in 2012, we will see the same levels of commitment from everyone involved and more success on the field.
