Castlewellan GAC Notes For 6 December 2014


dn_screenOn Friday night past we held our annual juvenile awards night writes Brian Cunningham.

This was an opportunity to celebrate the collective and individual successes achieved by our teams across all codes in 2014. A big thank you to everyone whom helped out on the night, including members of the Comhaltas who treated those assembled to some of our traditional music, our own senior county players who took time to come along and make the awards to the players and Siobhan Coulter whom travelled from Antrim to make a presentation to the parents and children who took part in our successful introduction to Camogie course which took place in early 2014. Special mention to our Under 12 player Erin O’Neill who was to be awarded Under 12 Girls Football Most Improved Player of the Year, unfortunately Erin was unable to attend the awards as she was in hospital. Well done Erin from everyone in the club.

Castlewellan GAC takes great pride in those that represent us outside of club colours.  Saturday last was no different at Pearse Ogs ground in Armagh where St Malachy’s High School contested the Ulster Medallian Centre Shield camogie final where they were most impressive in victory. Superbly represented by Castlewellan’s very own Becky White, Jade Hammond, Rebecca Toner and Aising O’Neill this was a quite brilliant achievement and added congratulations to coach Grace Duffin.

At the same venue Assumption Grammar School upset all the odds by winning Ulster’s Corn an Athur O Daibhin Cup by the narrowest of margins. Congratulations to Town girls Sinead Sweeney, Ciara Gibson, Ailing Connolly, Cattiona Caldwell, Anna Rogan and Nicola McCabe. Congratulations to Noreen Known part of the coaching team.

A schedule of upcoming coaching courses has been posted on the club website under latest news. Anyone interested in partaking in any of these courses please contact John O’Neill on 07711737610.
