PHOTOS – Limerick Celtics Annual Awards Night Massive Success



Limerick Celtics annual awards night was held on Saturday May 28, in Salesians Sportshall and what a great night it turned out to be.

A huge turnout of club players and parents had Salesians full to capacity and with so many parents doing a super job setting up this event, which was really enjoyable for both young and old.

Willie O’Dea TD and Tracy Mahedy Limerick Sports Partnership presented the cups, shields and medals on the night. The Limerick Celtics annual awards night opened with the under 10’s boys and girls receiving their awards for the season, with over 40 boys and girls turned up in this age group to receive their medals and most improved players awards.

A number of teams had completed league and cup doubles this year and received both their cup and league trophies on the night. The Senior ladies had completed the treble this season by winning the North Munster League, Cup and Top four competitions. Captain Leanne Aherne was presented with all three cups on the night. While the under 13 girls also had a remarkable season by completing the treble in the Cork Dihevision One league. Limerick Celtics annual awards night recognised the under 14 girls wins with both the Cork Cup and Top Four competition.

Jack Dowling picked up an Outstanding Achievement award for his super commitment and performances during the season, while Helga Noble picked up the best supporter award for her super support at all the ladies and girls games throughout the season. 

On the night Celtics presented thirty four MVP and MIP awards to players from under 10 to Senior level who had put in some great effort and commitment throughout the entire season.
