Paddy Re­ceives His Well De­served Award!


Last Satur­day night was a proud one for all Kil­macanogue club mem­bers as Paddy O'Brien was the re­cip­i­ent of the Wicklow GAA Club’s Club-per­son of the Year (pic­tured above). Any­one that knows Paddy will be very aware of the ded­i­cated ser­vice he has given not just the club, but the com­mu­nity of Kil­macanogue in gen­eral and many were there at the awards to wit­ness the pre­sen­ta­tion. A loud cheer was heard through the walls of the Ark­low Bay Ho­tel when Paddy stepped up to re­ceive his award and it is hard to imag­ine a more pop­u­lar win­ner. Of course be­hind ev­ery great man is a great woman and in Paddy's case, he has two of them! With­out cast­ing any as­per­sions on “Our Paddy”, I think it was also recog­ni­tion of the work Paddy's proud wife Mary does along with their great friend Sue Fox and of course they were there on the night for sup­port. While its go­ing back a few years now since his elec­tion, don't for­get Paddy is also the Lord Mayor of Kil­macanogue so we all bet­ter con­grat­u­late the Mayor! Well done Paddy, your a true gen­tle­man, really well re­spected and loved by us all in the vil­lage of Kil­macanogue and en­joy this award.
