While Ross and Colin were not there to pick their awards, both players were FaceTime’d to to say a few words, well done guys!
It was also time to say a massive thank you and “au revoir” to a number of key influential personnel from our Senior Squad.
First up, our Head Coach, the driving force behind the team for the past three years, Mark Harrington. While Mark will be staying actively involved in the club, he’s stepping down as our Head Coach. A huge thank you for all your time, dedication and passion for the team.
Next two legends in Dean Brassington and Gareth Early “Scrumpy”, also stepping away from the coaching side. Thank you guys for your dedication and commitment throughout the past few seasons. Also departing are Eoin O’Byrne and Geoff Duff.
A fond farewell to two stalwarts of the game, Joe Glennon and Eddie O Mahoney, who were presented with Club presentations.
Thanks also to Sarah and Emma for their work throughout the year looking after and getting our players back out on the pitch.
Finally a huge thank you to all the supporters who travelled to support the teams up and down the country. The effort and support doesn’t go unnoticed by all the players, coaches and management. It’s the support that makes this club so special. The players look forward to your support next year which will involve many new Clubs!
