Naomh Padraig (North Antrim) U15 Presentation Night 2021
On Friday 19th November 2021, the North Antrim amalgamation of Cloughmills, Carey, Armoy and Cushendun celebrated their successful 2021 campaign at U15 level with a presentation dinner in the Central Bar in Ballycastle.
In July 2021, they won the North Antrim Championship by beating All Saints, Ballymena in the final by 2 points in Glenariffe. They also finished 2nd in the All County League Division 2 despite not losing a game. In the Feile, they were beaten in the final by 2 points by Division 1 team Rossa. The same opposition beat them by 1 point after extra time in the All County Championship Semi-Final.
This presentation evening allowed the young players and their coaches the opportunity to celebrate the success that had been achieved this year. The evening began with a brief introduction by coach Joe Smyth followed by dinner. Once dinner was consumed, the main part of the evening commenced with a few short speeches. First from coach Joe Smyth who also introduced Guest of Honour for the evening, Peader McVeigh from the recent Antrim Intermediate Champions, Carey Faughs. Peader is also a Naomh Padraig graduate, playing on the very first Naomh Padraig Minor team in 2015, who were narrowly beaten in the Minor Championship Final by Dunloy.
After Peader’s speech, Team captain Callum Kane was presented with the North Antrim Championship trophy. Then, one by each of the victorious players received their well deserved medals from the guest of honour.
