Éire Óg GAA Club held its dinner dance last week at Greystones Golf club.

Cathaoirleach Brendan Cuddihy welcomed the large attendance including special guests Martin Fitzgerald, Cathaoirleach an Chondae and Gerry Kenny Captain GCC and his wife Trish, as well as club president Patsy Vickers.

On the night there was a good gender mix with all the award winners being very well supported on the night with everyone receiving an enthusiastic cheer when collecting their silverware. Both men and women donned more glamorous attire for the occasion than might be worn on the pitch. Three new trophies were added to the club's cabinet in 2018 - the Ladies Junior Championships and those for the u-20B and Minor (u17)A Championships.

Unfortunately because of the venue being licensed, the minors were not able to attend to receive their medals.

A host of awards were handed out, including Club Person of the Year Daniel O'Connor for the huge contribution he has made to the club both on the coiste and on the hurling field.

Brendan Cuddihy complimented the dinner dance committee, Mark Barry, Anto Byrne, Olive Farrell, Daniel O'Connor and Wendela Zegers on their superb organising which made for a great night. The enjoyment was aided in no small measure by the quality of the meal, the efficiency with which it was served.

It was a most enjoyable evening and a lovely way to celebrate the club's achievements over the past year with many players being honoured.
