A presentation night was held in Mountbolus Hall on Tuesday the 20th of June to present the victorious Killoughey Schools Hurling and Camogie teams with their Cumann na mBunscol medals.
There was a great turn out from parents, families, friends and staff from the three schools involved and it was a lovely way to celebrate the children's achievements.
Lorraine Keena, a Kilcormac Killoughey camogie player and vice-captain of the Offaly Senior Camogie team presented the girls with their medals and congratulated them on their victory. She encouraged them to keep playing the game and looks forward to playing alongside them in the coming years.
Cillian Kiely, current K/K and Offaly Senior Hurler and Stephen Byrne, current K/K senior manager and former Offaly goalkeepr and All-Star Award winner presented the boys with their medals. Stephen also spoke passionately to the children about the importance and value of their win to the parish as a whole. We would like to thank Lorraine, Stephen and Cillian for giving up their time to present the medals to the children and for being such great role models for our students.
We would like to thank Pauline Kilmartin for looking after the catering once again and anyone else who helped out with the organising of the night in any way.
Many thanks to Frances Keating and Donal Rigney for looking after the camogie team and also Seamus Spain and Shane Hand for taking care of the boys.
Sincere thanks to Damien White for acting as MC on the evening.
