Our intermediate championship winning Panel were presented with their Medals by Oisin while Alan McLauglin won the Player of the year award and Cormac Feeney was a very popular recipient of the Club Person Award and he was presented with the Monsignor Hynes Cup by Donal Kerins. Thanks to all involved in organising the event and especially Micheal O Domhnaill, Siobhan Waters and Brenda Donagher.
