Minor Medal Presentation Night
There was a good turnout to the minor medal presentation night on Saturday night last in Egan’s marquee. The packed enthusiastic crowd heard from various speakers including special guest, All Ireland winning player with Dublin and 2 time All Star, Ciarán Kilkenny, club minor chairman, Matt Hamilton, club vice chairman, Richie Higgins, and Caulry minor captain, Colin Murphy.
Matt Hamilton began by welcoming the good sized crowd and special guest. He said it was a privilege to have Ciarán Kilkenny celebrate the successful year and encouraged the players to aspire to be like him. Matt thanked all the parents for their cooperation throughout the year and expressed sincere gratitude to all who sponsored the team, particularly he thanked John Ledwith and Gary Flanagan for their generosity. Matt spoke highly of the management team of Kevin Connaughton, Richie Higgins and John Burke for their hard-work and dedication and complemented the fine brand of football played by the lads. Matt further thanked all involved in the underage set up in the club and looked forward to the bright future of football ahead of it.
Ciarán Kilkenny congratulated the minor winning team. He spoke about the hard-work, dedication and commitment of the lads and emphasised that minor is only the start of their journey of football with the club. Ciarán encouraged the lads to keep pushing on and improving in order to get the club back up to senior rankings and wished them the very best of luck in the future. Ciarán then opened the floor to questions. He wished Westmeath the very best of luck in the O’Byrne cup final and concluded by reiterating that the key to success is hard-work.
Minor winning captain, Colin Murphy then spoke on behalf of the players. He thanked the management team and all involved in coaching for their support throughout the year. Colin expressed gratitude to the parents and supporters for their loyalty. He spoke about the privilege he felt to captain this bunch of lads and thanked Ciarán Kilkenny for his appearance on the night.
