Ruairí Óg CLG and Camogie Club held their Annual Celebration & Presentation Night on Sat 23rd November in Cushendall Golf Club. One hundred and fifty guests attended and everyone had a very enjoyable night helped in no small measure by the happy and celebratory mood of the camogie girls who ensured there was a great ambience throughout the proceedings. Though he was not there in person, we know the sponsor of our senior camogie and hurling teams, Brian Mc Naughton was there in spirit, but we were delighted to welcome the attendance of the Senior Reserves' sponsor, Harvey Formwork's Hugh & Moira Harvey. A big thank you to the representatives of the local schools and clubs who attended to show their support and to demonstrate just how well we work together in making Cushendall the unique place that we all believe it is.
We would like to thank Rosie for an exceptionally tasty meal and to all her staff for working so hard attending to our every need. Thank you to DJ, Aidan and his assistant who were ther from early evening setting up the sound system and projector and then made sure there was music after the dinner to keep everyone on the dance floor. And To Paddy Mc Loughlin for the film-show that captured so many poignant and special moments in the club's journey during 2019, we are indebted as always. Likewise, to Sean Paul Mc Killop who was there on the night to photograph our celebrations but, who like Paddy and Neal O' Boyle take so many photographs of our players in action across all of the age groups during the year, again we say a massive thank you. We very much appreciated the efforts of Eimer O' Hara, Maureen Mc Alister, Martin Magee and Michael Quinn who ensured the awards part of the night ran smoothly and without a hitch. Congratulations to all our award-winners and thank you to the various people who presented those awards. Thanks also to Chairpersons, Dan Delargy and again, Maureen who spoke eloquently about the efforts of so many both on and off the pitch.
Finally, a heartfelt thank you to Cushendall Golf Club for making their wonderful premises available to host our Celebration Dinner and to all their members, bar staff and officials for making us feel so welcome - we are truly grateful.
