Cahir Park AFC Notes
Cahir Park AFC Remembers the Late Pat KinsellaOn Saturday afternoon last Family, friends and club members gathered to remember the Late Pat Kinsella in Cahir Park in the inaugural Pat Kinsella Memorial Cup. Pat gave many years of his life connected to Cahir Park AFC and the club would like to thank his wife Sadie and family for the beautiful cup in which the club will host a pre season annual tournament in his memory. Pat was a trustee of the club in recent years and was a very proud man to see and help out in the All weather pitch project right up to the end even when his health tried to go against him he still made it to the Park to keep an eye on proceedings. People came from near and far to a sunsoaked Cahir Park with stories told and memories shared. On the pitch we want to thank Shane Ferris and his Bansha Celtic team for taking part on the day and wish them the very best of luck in the coming season. Pats daughter Ann surrounded by his family presented the Cup to Cahir Park captain Ian "bunty" Flannery. We would also like to thank Hughie in The Shamrock Lounge for his hospitality afterwards. It's nice to know Pat will be remembered for many years to come in the Park. Our Junior A and B Teams continue there pre season build up with various matches and training hard over the last few weeks. This Sunday sees the A team start there league campaign with a home match against Cashel Town at 12pm. We would like to wish all the lads and the new management team of Willie Murphy, Norman O Brien, Jason Allen and Paul Conway the very best of luck for the coming season. A lot of hard work has gone in over the past few weeks and with new and old faces back in the Park we look forward to a enjoyable and hopefully successful season ahead. Our Youths teams are also working hard in pre season. We are lucky to have two teams at youth level again this year. Youths season kicks off in two weeks. Our ladies team played their final game of the season today in Newhill against Borris st kevins. Well done to each one of our girls who gave a spirited performance in a day that so many other sports were also scheduled. Thanks to everyone for their assistance throughout the season. Enjoy the well earned break. Our schoolgirls teams will be back in action in the coming weeks in all age groups. They are looking forward to the new season after their break. Registration details and training schedule will follow shortly. The official opening of the all weather pitch will be held on Sunday 27th of August by FAI CEO John Delaney at 12.30pm. We would like to invite everyone down for a fun day and to celebrate a wonderful achievement for the club which would not have been possible but for the support from the people of the town.
