Senior Medals Presentations
Last Saturday in Condrons Bar, Ballingarry we held our Senior County Medal Presentation Night in recognition of our Seniors County Final a couple of weeks ago. It was very well attended and a well deserved night for our senior panel on their third County Final in a row. A special recognition should go to Vera Sheehan who received her 16th County final winners medal which is a tremendous achievement. Well done Vera. Presentations were also made on the night to the management team of Ciaran Carey, Louise Enright, Eoin Ryan and Tommy Stack for all their hard work and commitment during the season. Thank you to Condrons Bar for hosting the night.
