St Patrick’s club notes January 25

Congratulations to all the recipients at the Wicklow GAA Sports Stars Awards Ceremony which was held in the Arklow Bay Hotel on Saturday night. Especially Club members Dean Healy who received County Senior Footballer of the Year and Laura Manley who received Camogie Player of the Year with Donard Glen. Well done to you both.

Over the last 5 years the Ladies section in the club has progressed massively. The Senior ladies winning the Senior League and U14’s winning Division 1 All Ireland Feile in 2015. All other teams throughout the grades have achieved great awards across the board with various County and League titles over the years. All in St Patricks appreciate and thank the outgoing Ladies Chairperson Georgina Cruise who has stepped down for the amazing hard work with sheer dedication, knowledge and passion for Ladies Football and St Patricks GAA. We are proud of the joy you gave to each and everyone of us and all the kids. We are sure we will find you pitch side in the coming months supporting all teams as usual.

We wish the incoming Ladies Committee all the best for 2016: Chairperson Stephen McNulty, Secretary Caroline Courtney, Treasurer Nicola McGettigan, Registrar Peggy King and Fixtures Manager Kathryn Fox.
