Victory Dinner Dance Success   23/02/2016

Uibh Laoire GAA held our Victory Dinner Dance in The Parkway Hotel, Dunmanway on Saturday, February 13th and a great night was had by the strong attendance on the night. 

Fortunately, there was plenty of silverware at the top table as the players received their medals for winning the Mid-Cork U21 Football Championship, Mid-Cork Junior B Hurling Championship, County Junior A Football League and of course, the long awaited Mid-Cork Junior A Football Championship. 

The Footballer Of The Year Award deservedly went to Barry Murphy. Barry had an outstanding year at corner-back, seeing off some of the best forwards in the county at Junior level and carrying the fight to opposition teams from his corner-back berth. He cemented his place as one of the best defenders in the Muskerry division. 

The Hurler Of The Year Award duly went to Finbarr McSweeney Jnr. Finbarr revelled in his new role at the heart of the defence at centre-back, providing a great presence & oceans of hurling ability. He is one that will have no trouble making the transition to Junior A hurling in 2016.

Clubperson Of The Year was awarded to Ger McSweeney after his outstanding work as club secretary in 2015. Stepping up to the plate at the AGM, Ger took to his new role like a fish to water, ensuring the club continued to thrive behind the scenes. His work in helping with the organisation of Inchigeela Festival in 2015 has thankfully not gone unnoticed, along with much more day-to-day work within the club. 

Special thanks goes to Bishop John Buckley on going to great lengths to be in attendance on the night, along with Fr. Martin O'Driscoll & Chairman of the Muskerry Board, Pat Malone. 

Thanks also goes to The Parkway Hotel for the excellent service and food on the night & to The Music Makers who ensured the crowd finished out by dancing the night away! 

Final word of thanks goes to Connie Cronin for providing her photography skills on the night, taking some great photos which can be found on our club Facebook page.
