After 20 years as referee coordinator and member of various County Board committees Mick Fennin has taken a well deserved break. He was honoured for his contribution last night at the County Convention by Chairman Ger Donnelly. We wish Mick and family the very best.
Castlemitchell had another enjoyable visit to Hawkfield with the Under 15 team victorious over Kilcullen in the League final. Both teams have to be commended for their outstanding display of football in very windy wintery conditions and treated the spectators to a nine goal feast. Congratulations to the team and their coaches Micheál Kelly and Tom Harris.
Congratulations to our Under 13 team who had a fantastic victory over Kilcullen yesterday in the Under 13 League final played in Hawkfield.
