Every year the club recognises one member who goes above and beyond to help out in the club – generally without even being asked. This year, the Ciara O’Brien Club Person of the Year Award went to Finn Halligan from the U15 boys. Finn helped every week with the primary school leagues, coaching teams or keeping score and he consistently helped out with the U11 boys team, from starting training sessions, to researching drills on his own initiative and running them at training, to assisting the coach with matches, and even coached a game on his own when the coach had to referee the game!! His willingness to give up his time to help his club is to be commended.
Congratulations Finn and all who received awards!!
The evening finished up with the senior boys and girls teams playing against the coaches….this game gets harder and harder every year for the coaches!! The U17’s were well up for it and ran the coaches ragged with their fast breaks, however youth, speed and exuberance are no match for Dad bods and dirty tricks!! The title was retained by the coaches, for one more year at least!
