Presentation Night
The Presentation of medals for the Junior A County Camogie Winners and the North Tipperary U21A Hurling Champions took place on Saturday last 8th March in The Thatch, Ballycommon with a capacity crowd in attendance. Gilbert Williams was M.C. for the night and got the night’s proceedings underway starting with the presentation of the county medals to the Junior A camogie team. Current Tipperary Senior hurler, Paddy Stapleton spoke about the importance of rural clubs in the community and the buzz a winning team brings to a parish and congratulated the girls on their great victory. He presented the medals to each of the players and a framed photograph of the team on County Final day was presented to the manager Pat Shanahan, selectors and back-room team of Martin Tooher, Freddie Williams, Martin Walsh, Frances Cleary, John Cahill, Paul and Mel Callan. The winner of the Player of the Year Award was Claire Kennedy. Next was the presentation of the hurling medals – Eddie Brennan, former Kilkenny senior hurler, also congratulated all the winners on the night and hoped that the club would build on these wins for the future. He proceeded to present the medals to the U21 players. After the presentations were completed, Joe Cahill, Chairman of the Camogie Club wished all the players, both camogie and hurling continued success for the future. This night was also a first for the camogie club and hurling club to have a joint medal presentation night and going by the huge crowd in attendance it was a success. The Chairman of the Hurling Club, George O’Leary congratulated all the players and brought the speeches to a close before the music started and everyone danced the night away.
Thanks to the management and staff of The Thatch for providing a beautiful meal on the night.
