Richie Power Presents Crotta Juvenile Awards 2016-04-22 15:25:00

Crotta O’Neills Chairman Sonny Egan hosted the Crotta O’Neills Club Awards in the St Clomba’s Centre in Kilfylynn last Saturday night. It has been a great year for Crotta Coiste na nOg, with the U10s winning the North Kerry Hurling Blitz, the U12s winning the County and North Kerry, the U13s winning the County B and North Kerry, and the U16s doing likewise. In a year with a lot of days for these enthusiastic young players, last Saturday was surely a standout, with none other than Kilkenny’s Richie Power distributing the medals, standing for photographs, signing autographs, and encouraging the players. Crotta has seen many luminaries of the game visit the club – Dan Shanahan, Brendan Bugler, Brendan Maher, and Sean Og o hAilpin among many others – but Richie Power brought along something that none of the rest of them had, the Liam McCarthy Cup itself, on its first ever visit to a club that has seen a lot of great hurling trophies pass through the doors.
Congratulations to Crotta and grateful thanks to Richie Power, as great a gentleman as he is a hurler, and hopefully some of our young and rising talent will one day go on to emulate his feats.
