A wonderful night of prize giving for our youth Girls and Boys teams last evening.

The awards were presented by our special guest of honour Hugh Gavin who was a member of the Ireland U20 Grand Slam winning team. Hugh started rugby in Galwegians at 5 years of age, and played senior rugby for the club this season in between training and appearing for Connacht Eagles and the Ireland U20’s.

Club President Frank Kinneen presented Hugh with a trophy from the club in honour of his achievement, and Youth rugby director Mickey Sherlock presented a framed photo to Hugh.

Frank and Hugh also presented the awards to all our youth players and to club person of the Year and U14 team manager Eileen Kenny.
