The Carrick-on-Suir Davin senior team finished their season with a Seamus Ó’Riain final defeat to Thurles Sarsfields but were satisfied with their performance throughout the season.
The team are already looking forward to the senior championship next year and the committee would like to thank the players and the mentors for their commitment over the past eight months.
Meanwhile the minors have two games left in their league campaign, both of which they will need to win to advance.
The under-16s drew their last game with Kilsheelan and remain unbeaten, they will qualify for the semi-finals but will need to beat Cahir to top their group.
Davin’s junior footballers were well beaten by Ballingarry last Sunday, a bit more dedication to the big ball will be required for this team to progress further.
The Davin Summer Camp held last week was a massive success with over 120 entrants, and visits from Tipperary senior hurlers Seamus Callanan, Noel McGrath and Kieran Bergin. On the final day of camp there was a fun day with a mixture of GAA, athletics and novelty games including tug-of-war. The camp ended with a BBQ and a medal presentation.
The club would like to thank all our sponsors, the ladies’ committee, the kids, parents, Jim Hawkins and his FÁS team for preparing the field.
Special awards were also given to Noreen Robinson for her dedication to the juveniles, and one for Ethan Kennifick for his part in proving that you can be “nice” and also win.
This related to game between Davins and Moyle Rovers at under-12 level, which made national news last week because of a conversation that took place between full back Ethan and a Moyle Rovers player. Ethan has been commended by the parents of this player for his behaviour and attitude towards his opponent, which has been documented nationally over the past week. We at the club would like to thank the Moyle Rovers club for their kind comments towards Ethan and the Davin club, also we ourselves congratulate Ethan on his sportmanship.
The under 12s lost their county final to Clonoulty-Rossmore by a single point last Saturday evening, and the Club congratulates all the players, selectors and parents for an exciting season.
