At the recent Christmas Club Night a presentation was made to Tommy Allen.
Tommy has been involved with the club for over 10 years, working as a coach and serving on the committee. He also served on the Limerick County Board and in March 2010 received the Mike Dunne Memorial Award for PRO of the Year (2009) at the RTE & Camogie Association Media Awards. On the night, Tom was commended as being “to the fore of Limerick Camogie, building up a consistent level of regional print and broadcast coverage as well as pioneering the development of a camogie website”.
Tommy has coached various age groups over the years, encouraging the ongoing tradition of participating in our national sport. Although he has stepped down as Chairman, he will continue on with the club in a coaching capacity. The development and continued success of the game throughout the county is dependent on people like Tommy who give freely of their time. We are indebted to him for his continued efforts. Whether he is at a meeting or on the sideline, he continues to be a great ambassador for Kilmallock camogie and the sport in general.
Registration for 2014 -
Club registration will take place on Wednesday January 15 at the Complex (time TBC) . Due to an increase imposed by the County Board for affiliation fees we have had to raise the registration fee to €25 for children and €40 for adults for 2014 (family discounts will apply). We would like to make it clear that Kilmallock Camogie Club will not profit from the increase as the extra fees go to the County Board. We understand that families will just be getting over Christmas so we will introduce a 3 stage payment option. Players must pay registration fee or they will not be covered by insurance and therefore can not play/train with the club. For more details contact registrar Helen Walsh on 085 1521102.
