Club Notes 4th April

St. Brigid’s GAA Club notes week ending, April 4th 2021

Sports Award: Hearty congrats to Ruaidhrí Fallon who scooped the Outstanding Achievement Award at the 2020 Westmeath Independent Sports Awards held virtually last Friday evening. A richly deserved award for Ruaidhrí for, first and foremost, a series of outstanding displays in our 2020 senior championship winning campaign. Still only 17 years of age at the time, Ruaidhrí in his senior debut season became a key figure in the successful bid to recapture the Fahey Cup. Ruaidhrí was also on our successful 2020 minor championship winning team, which secured a five-in-a-row, and was a member of the U20 Roscommon team that got to the Connacht Final last year. Well done also to Seamus Nugent - father of one of our coaches, Enda Nugent - who was honoured with the Hall of Fame award. Seamus has made a huge contribution to sport in the Athlone area, both on and off the playing field.

Online jump competition: Congratulations to Liam Hennelly (U19) and Emmet Muldowney (U15) on winning the free yearly membership in our recent online jump competition for our players from U13 to U19. Some amazing jump scores were recorded and it is great to see all our lads continuing to remain active. We would like to thank Eamon O Rourke for his kind sponsorship of the competition.
