Micheál Ó Muircheartaigh, Carraig Boys and Grandons Community Cup 2017
The boys of Scoil an Athar Tadhg headed to Glanmire Football on Wednesday evening hoping to retain the title. While all the boys played well, there were some terrific performances on the night from captain, Martin Murphy and Luke Linehan in defence. Zach Lynch, David O’ Mahony, Micheál Murphy and Robert Sheehan around midfield, and up front Ciarán O’Leary, Sean Kent and Mark O Flynn.
The parade behind Barrick Street Band greatly added to the occasion on a beautiful evening for football. Carraig boys were disappointed to lose to eventual winners Scoil na Nóg by the narrowest of margins, before going on to account for New Inn and Riverstown in winning the plate competition.
The boys will forever remember the night the legend that is Micheál Ó Muircheartaigh did commentary on the action and having him present their medals. The all action performance of Robert Sheehan earned him the Man of the Match award in the plate final.
Micheál O’ Muircheartaigh presents Captain Martin Murphy with Grandons Plate 2017.
Congratulations to Sarah Ahern and Kevin Fitzpatrick on their selection on the Primary Game team. Sarah had the honour of playing with the camogie team in Thurles, and Kevin with the footballers in Dungarvan.

We would like to express our gratitude to Orlagh, Rockbán Club, Whitechurch GAA Club and the wonderful team of coaches who contributed to the success of this Gaelic4Girls programme.
