John is currently recovering in Cork University Hospital after which he will have to spend an extended period of time in the National Rehabilitation Hospital in Dublin. Thanks to John's brother and sister, Paul and Ciara, for accepting a cheque for €1500 from Chairman John Spriggs on behalf of John. Thanks also to the Leahy Family including Laura Fitzgerald, granddaughter of Seamas Ó Riordáin for presenting the prizes including winners shield which is named in memory of Seamas. Well done to all our winners including overall winners Paul Murphy and his sons Lee and Paul, juvenile winners Ben Murphy, Timmy Wilk and Eoin Cullimore, Family Winners Johnny Leahy and family and our Camogie winners Mari & Elaine Moynihan, Erica Field, Aoife Hart, Sorcha McKeown and Aoife Richardson A big thanks also to our musicians Sean Damery, Ellen O'Regan and Niall Spriggs who provided fantastic music before Jamie Stanton took over.
