Congratulations to Old Parish
A great crowd attended the recent Old Parish Ladies Football Club presentation night. They had a lovely gang from U6 all the way up to U16’s in attendance. Presenting medals to winning U12 and U14 teams, they also took the opportunity to mark the efforts and successes of their two club members Neasa Keevers and Kelly Johnson who were part of the successful 2019 U16 panel.
Senior county player, Caoimhe McGrath, presented medals (and chocolate Santys) to each girl on the night, sharing some of her own experiences of playing, along with some great words of encouragement to the girls and their families. Oíche iontach a bhí ann sa Sean Phobal. Go raibh míle maith agat to gach éinne a thug cabhair ar an oíche.
