TI­NA­HELY ju­ve­nile GAA club held its pre­sen­ta­tion night last Satur­day in the com­mu­nity cen­tre. The spe­cial guests on the night were our two lo­cal lads who are at present on the Wicklow U-21 foot­ball team, Pa­trick O'Rourke and Shane Ho­gan.

Packie Gor­man our new chair­man was the MC and he thanked all the peo­ple from the ladies who do so much work in the back­ground when the club hosts the Go Games hurl­ing and foot­ball blitz through out the year to all the coaches who give up so much of their time to be in­volved with the young boys and girls teach­ing them how to play GAA games.

He also thanked Jim Coogan who was in at­ten­dance and the Se­nior club for their help and wished them luck in the year ahead.

Packie also con­grat­u­lated the Ti­na­hely ladies club for the su­per 2012 they had and hopefully they would go a lit­tle bet­ter this year es­pe­cially in Le­in­ster.

He also con­grat­u­lated Pa­trick and Shane along with Conor Hat­ton and Jamie Cullen who were all part of Wicklow county foot­ball teams in the last year.

Packie also thanked the out­go­ing com­mit­tee of Martin Ging, Wil­liam Fur­long, and Jimmy Lil­lis for all the good work and the strong foot­ing the club has as we move for­ward.

Also he gave credit to the prin­ci­pals in the three schools Mrs Gal­lagher, Ti­na­hely, Mrs Had­den, Kil­com­mon, and Mrs Murphy Cross­bridge for en­cour­ag­ing GAA games within.

Packie also thanked Fiona and Joe Mal­lick Bus Hire for the re­fresh­ments on the night and their sup­port through­out the years, Al Lawless APL, Pat Nolan Paint­ing Con­trac­tor and Harry El­lis Well Drilling for the spon­sor­ship of jer­seys for the U-10 and U-12 teams and to all the other peo­ple who do­nate money to­wards the run­ning of the club

Kieran O'Shea our new sec­re­tary and the vice chair­man of the Coiste na n'Og then took over for the pre­sen­ta­tion of medals to all our U-8 and U-10 boys and girls who took part in the Go Games hurl­ing and foot­ball blitz's. Then we moved onto our U12 hurlers who won the mini fes­ti­val fi­nal and U12 foot­ballers who also won the mini fes­ti­val fi­nal in 2012.

Rory Stokes then took over for the pre­sen­ta­tion of the U-14 B foot­ball Shield medals. Be­fore fin­ish­ing up Kieran told the play­ers and par­ents about the New GAA rule that all ju­ve­nile play­ers have to wear mouth guards from U-6 to U-18 to train­ing and to all foot­ball games from the start of this year.

Packie then fin­ished off by en­cour­ag­ing all the young play­ers do their best and at the end of the day it's not all about win­ning but en­joy­ing the games you play.
