Joey Fa­gan re­tires

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

There was an emo­tional evening at the Baltinglass and District Bad­minton Club re­cently as the long stand­ing chair­man Joe Fa­gan re­tired af­ter 37 years of ser­vice. Joey was de­scribed as a true gent with noth­ing but the good of bad­minton at heart. A large crowd, in­clud­ing SWL stal­wart, Lof­tus War­ren were on hand with Eoghan Cooney act­ing as MC to present him with a small to­ken to mark this tremen­dous ser­vice.

Also on the night, the first in­ter­na­tional player was pre­sented with a sur­prise pre­sen­ta­tion, mark­ing his amaz­ing achieve­ment of win­ning all three national ti­tles this year. Eoghan Cooney heads off to Scot­land next week rep­re­sent­ing Ire­land in the un­der-13. Best of luck to him, your club are all root­ing for you.
