Castleknock GAA Mini All Ireland Leagues - August 8th-13th
Neil and myself would like to thank everyone who has made the mini leagues such a special week.
With over 330 children enjoying the beautiful sunshine, meeting friends, making new friends and playing this great sport.
There are so many people to thank, it is impossible to do so individually, but we feel that we have to mention a few.
Our two juvenile chairs, Gerry and Jason have given us huge support and have been hands on in helping organising and running the event.
Each mentor, parent and volunteer who rushed home from work in order to do pitch set up, manage a team, work the shop and to tidy up. Their sense of community spirit is immense.
Our amazing referee’s who were very fair and gave clear instructions to the players. They are a credit to the club and their parents.
Our groundsmen, who ensured that the pitches we’re in great condition, in such high temperatures.
- O’Neill and Brennan who sponsored the wonderful T- shirts.
- Supervalu Finglas who sponsored the wonderful goody bags.
- Mixtape marketing for the Gazebos and inflatables.
- Seamus Harrington Construction Limited for sponsoring the slush machine.
- John Boyle at Musgrave Fonthill Road for supplying drinks and snacks.
- Tony Lannigan for the amazing P.A system (It sent a shiver down our spine watching the kids run onto the Senior Pitch to the Sunday game music).
Most importantly, you the parents for bringing your son/daughter to the mini leagues at Castleknock GAA and getting involved on the sideline by encouraging the boys and girls.
Till next year.
Yours in sport,
Neil Devlin and Mark Watters
