Our underage awards took place over two nights in November with the younger age groups from under- 7 to under-10 being recognised on Sunday 3 November 2019 in front of a huge crowd in St. Patrick’s Parish Centre. Numerous cups and shields were won amongst our younger teams including our U10 boys teams who won the Gary Doyle Memorial Cups in Letterkenny.
County star Hugh McFadden was the guest on the night and he presented the boys and girls from the younger teams with medals and picture books from their year. Hugh went on to speak about his underage years and the importance of perseverance for younger players.
The older age groups had their achievements recognised on Sunday 17 November 2019, again in front of a huge crowd, in Lough Eske Castle. This included under-11s up to minor boys football, hurling and camogie teams.
2019 was an outstanding year for Bord na nÓg with each team being competitive across all ages and codes, county titles at U13, U14, U16 and U18 boys football, regional titles at U12, U13, U14,U16 boys football, several memorial Cups won at U7, U8, U9 and U10’s boys football and an All Ireland Féile Division 2 title for our U14 boys footballers.
Huge thanks to our Senior players Caolán Loughney, Barry Dunnion, and Kevin McBrearty who presented the awards on the night. Master of Ceremonies on the night Rory O’Donnell kept everyone entertained. Well done to all the award winners on the night and thanks to the Lough Eske Castle for their continued support.
Our All Ireland winning féile team received a standing ovation near the end of the night for their wonderful achievement of being the first All Ireland winning team in the club. Club senior player Barry Dunnion spoke very well to all our underage players and parents, and on this year’s showing at underage the future is very bright for the club.
