On Sunday evening January 20th in a packed Club Aras, we we held our annual awards night in conjuction with Eochail Óg and Youghal Camogie Club where our sucessful teams from 2012 received their East Cork medals from Cork stars Angela Walsh, Conor Lehane and Luke Farrell. Over the past number of years this has proved to be one of the highlights for the juvenile members of the GAA, Ladies Football and Camogie Clubs where they receive their medals and awards in front of proud family members and friends. Senior Club PRO and local radio jock Mick Sheehan was MC for the evening keeping the audience entertained in his unique style. The Club would like to thank Angela, Conor and Luke for giving up their precious time to present awards and talk to our juvenile members, to all the parents, family members and friends who turned out to support our up and coming young stars and to all members who helped organise a very successful evening. For the record the following received their just rewards for their endeavours on the plaing fields in 2012. Well done to all.
