CLUB NOTES 21/01/24




Mid Board Awards Night.


On Saturday night last the Mid Board held its annual awards night in the Revel at the Ragg. As well as presenting the medals for the later championships, teams of the year, medals to referees and mementos to retiring officers, the main awards were given to the Mid division players of the year. Philip O Connell was awarded the Young Footballer of the Year for 2023 becoming the 7th Loughmore Castleiney player to receive the trophy since it was first presented in 1999. Congratulations to Philip and we look forward to seeing him collect many more trophies in the years ahead.
The Hall of Fame recipient was Willie Fogarty of Moyne Templetuohy and in a very eloquent speech, Willie thanked everyone who had supported him in various roles over the years. He made special mention of Loughmore Castleiney with whom he won a Mid and County Minor medal in 1964 when the two clubs combined forces. Congratulations to Willie on a lovely well merited award.

Club Gym

Thanks to some of our Senior club members, some additional gym equipment was put in place over the weekend and everything is in place to allow players to prepare for the year ahead.

Juvenile Notes

Our u15 and u17 players are continuing to attend the strength and conditioning sessions in the Sports Lab at LIT. This type of preparation is vital if we are to compete and progress and of course it is a huge asset in injury prevention so make sure to keep up the attendance.
