The Ark­low Bay Ho­tel was the venue for our an­nual get to­gether, where a large well dressed crowd gath­ered for a cel­e­bra­tion of the clubs achieve­ments from the year gone by. The night was a huge suc­cess by all ac­counts. Our top ta­ble was com­prised of fa­mil­iar faces from the com­mit­tee plus a few in­vited quests. Mick Ha­gan was present on be­half of the County Board and spoke highly of Carnew’s con­tri­bu­tion to the Wick­low cause in club and county com­mit­ments. Both sides of our re­li­gious com­mu­nity were rep­re­sented by Fr Martin Casey and Can­non Arthur Min­ion. Canon Min­ion is new to this area and came from a hurl­ing strong­hold of Shin­rone in Of­faly. Our guest of hon­our was no other than Mr Brian Cody from Kilkenny. He pre­sented the medals to our four winning teams and spoke to the gath­ered about the im­por­tance of a strong club in a lo­cal com­mu­nity. It was easy to see from his words why he com­mands such re­spect in Kilkenny and be­yond. It was great for the club to have such a lead­ing light in the GAA present at our big night. The com­mit­tee would like to thank every­one for turn­ing up and mak­ing it a fun night.


Two play­ers were recog­nised at the County Awards for their con­tri­bu­tion to Carnew through the pre­vi­ous year. Don Hy­land re­ceived ’club hurler of the year’ and Ti­mothy J Hen­nesey was the re­cip­i­ent of ’Mi­nor hurler of the year’. Both play­ers are at dif­fer­ent stages of their ca­reers and will play a big part in the com­ing year for club or county.


Fran has called the first train­ing ses­sion of this year for next Fri­day. Big num­bers are ex­pected as we com­pete in the top divi­sion in both codes. A good start is es­sen­tial to get mo­men­tum go­ing. A spring train­ing camp in Mar­bella, Spain was a topic of dis­cus­sion in the res­i­dents bar on Satur­day night. Con­tact Gra­ham Keogh for fur­ther de­tails.


Thank you and very well done to every­one who col­lected the Daily Mail to­kens to en­sure that the Ju­ve­nile Club reached their quota which en­sures them of a free set of jer­seys. A very spe­cial Thank You to both My­ers and O’Rourkes/Young’s Newsagents. Please leave the to­kens into Deegan’s Bet­ting Of­fice asap as the dead­line for postage is next week.
