Massive congrats to the Galway minors especially our very own Caelom Mulry who like his teammates had a storming second half to clinch a coveted All-Ireland medal and lift the Irish Press Cup. Commiserations to Paul Flaherty and the Galway senior who lost to Kilkenny in the senior final. These teams gave pride, skill, heart and enjoyment throughout the year.

Many thanks to all who attended this year’s Run in the Woods. With the 10km being a new addition, we figured numbers would be a little low but it certainly wasn't lacking in talent or spirit. A fabulous bunch of athletes entered what was a very challenging route right through the heart of the woods.

In the 5km the attendance was good with number of junior entrants this year, in particular our U12 hurlers, who have spent the last number of weeks training for this event with their manager and coaches. We had Janet Griffin put the 5km entrants through a vigorous warm up to get them ready for off and we'd like to thank Janet for her time. James Lundon of Athenry AC and Vincent Conway of East Galway AC were on hand to coordinate the finish line results. Dee Jordan provided a fantastic post-race BBQ. As always events like this don't happen without people so to all who volunteered their time, we'd like to extend our sincere gratitude.
