Senior County Champions 2016: Aughawillan Abú!! Congratulations to our mighty players, managers, selectors and background staff who have brought us to the County Championship Final and brought us home Senior Champions 2016. To the dedicated players who have given their all this year, whose commitment and dedication to training, improvement and learning has been unyielding since those dark cold days of February. We applaud you!! To Tommy and Joe Mc Cormack, who came to the club with a quiet determination, firm work ethic and a belief they would see the team through to a County final. We applaud you!! To Ciaran Mc Tague and Paul Prior who took on their roles as selectors with calm confidence and steadfast allegiance to the team and club. We applaud you!! To Marie Quinn whose service at every single game is invaluable. We applaud you!! To Christy and Angela Creamer who ensure our team are equipped throughout the year. We applaud you!! In 2014 the taste of success was exhilarating, in 2016 with two wins in three years the taste of success is awe-inspiring, from the children with wonderment on their faces, to the teenagers with respect, to the older generation with tears in their eyes, it is incredible what community spirit, admiration, belief and joy was displayed in Pairc Seán on Sunday.
