Alan to receive awards

Our club member Alan Murphy, whose excellent form in this year’s Mayo SFC resulted in a call-up to the Mayo senior squad during the summer, will receive the Golden Boot award Joint Top Scorer from Play in the Mayo SFC at the Mayo News Club Stars awards on Saturday, December 15, in Knockranny House Hotel, Westport.

And Alan is also in strong contention for a place on the Team of the Year on the same night. “The selection panel of Mayo News GAA writers Sean Rice and Austin Garvin, former Knockmore manager, Eamonn Clarke, and Mid West Radio co-commentator John Casey unanimously agreed that Alan’s performances throughout this year’s club championship were deserving of selection on our awards shortlist,” said Mayo News secretary, a former secretary of our club and also a former club player.
The club will be represented at the banquet, which is always a wonderful night, and anyone who would like to secure tickets (€60) can do so by contacting Cepta at The Mayo News office on  (098) 25311. They are on a ‘first come, first served’ basis and there is a lot of interest at the moment. We are hoping to have as many club people as possible along on the night to support Alan and his family.

All proceeds to to Mayo/Roscommon Hospice. The event MC is our club secretary Liam Horan. “A four-course meal will be served, Armagh All-Ireland winner Oisín McConville is our Special Guest, and there will be live music with Riverdeep,” added Mike.
