Thank You
The family of Martin Muldoon would like to thank all who helped on Saturday with the inaugural U12 Martin Muldoon Hurling Cup and Plate. The day was a great success as so many from the Parish, gave their time assisting with the baking and tea making as well as help on the sidelines. It was lovely that people came up to the GAA Brinny Pitch and joined us for a cup of tea. The plate was won by Mayfield GAA and fittingly the Cup final was between Cashel King Cormacs and The Valley Rovers. The Valleys won the cup which is very poignant as this is the team his son Enda plays with and the team Martin mentored. Again all the support from the Parish is very much appreciated by Martin’s family. Thank You.
