It was a night of celebrations in the Set Theatre at Langon’s as the young and not so young from the club came together to acknowledge the achievements of our athletes during 2018. Vice Chairman Brian Leahy welcomed everyone to the Set, congratulated all the athletes and thanked the coaches and club officials for their dedication throughout the year. He also thanked parents and families of athletes for their valuable support. Our sponsors were also thanked for their generosity. The citations were delivered by club coach, Sean Lynch while the presentations were made through Competition Secretary, May Hutt. Following the presentation ceremony there were eats galore served up by the hotel staff.
