Division 2 League Champions
The footballers rounded off a sensational year by adding the intermediate league title to the Junior championship and McArdle cup on Saturday in Greenford. They defeated St.Joes on a score line of Cus 0.17 St. Joes 1.05. Yet again this was a magnificent team performance but special mention to Cathal Nicholls and Sean O’Connor who were outstanding on the day. Best wishes are extended to Anthony Tighe and Johnny Kinch who both sustained serious looking injuries during the game.
On Saturday night almost 200 Cus Gaels gathered for our 80th anniversary celebration. On the night there were several awards handed out and we also honoured our successful footballers with the presentation of their medals for this year. Hurler of the year went to Tom Brennan, while footballer of the year went to Chris Eastwood (who also picked up the top scorer award). Club man of the year went to the ever popular Mattie Smith-a great winner of this award in our 80th year and a man who embodies everything that is good in our club!
We also paid tribute to the men and women who help run the club, with awards presented to our football coach, football and hurling managers, and club photographer Michaela Biggane. A big thank you goes to the organising committee with special thanks to MCs for the night- Cathal Murtagh and Larry O’Leary. Thanks are also extended to Luke Cleary for the design of the wonderful banner and John Murray for his tireless commitment this year.
