On Saturday night in Moyne Community Centre the club were one of the groups present for the annual C.A.V.A. Awards. C.A.V.A. was established 2001 to act as a representative voice for Community and Voluntary Groups in North Tipperary. Their mission is to facilitate people to empower themselves through collective participation in community and voluntary development. The Awards have been ongoing for over six years and there is six different awards Arts, Culture and Heritage, Social Inclusion, Environment, Community Empowerment, Youth and Sport, and the Economic Award.  There is also an overall award called the C.A.V.A. Outstanding Achievement Award. The club were amongst the groups nominated for the Sports Award and it was with great delight that we were announced as the winners. Paddy Doyle and John Flynn accepted the beautiful bog oak statue on behalf of the club. This award is for all the hard work everyone puts into the club from our athletes to officers, committee to volunteers and is no more than the club deserves as it has grown from strength to strength over the years.


Congratulations also to Martin Ryan on winning the Community Award. Martin has always supported the club and always gives great assistance in any development or in a voluntary capacity.
