North Antrim GAA held their Annual Presentation Dinner at the Glens Hotel, Cushendall on Friday 6th November with all guests, players and members from clubs enjoying a good evening’s entertainment along with some very fine food severed by the Glens Hotel.

Guest speaker on the night was Antrim County Vice-Chairman Joe Edwards who commended on the vast array of trophies and where the Hurling power in Antrim County clearly lies.  The Vice Chairman gave an update on the County Development Squads, the Dunsilly Project where in December this year 2 pitches and the changing facilities will be started with a completion date of next year.  He spoke about the Casement Park project and the setbacks it has to date due to various reasons but going forward he is hopeful the project will still happen in the years ahead as it much needed as a central point for GAA in Antrim.  The County Vice-Chairman finished off wishing all the North Antrim Clubs a very successful year ahead.


North Antrim GAA Chairman Owen Elliott addressed the gathering saying tonight was a celebration of the achievements of the North Antrim Clubs, our Affiliated South West Clubs at Divisional, All County, Provincial and even All Ireland levels for 2015.  He congratulated all the clubs including our special guests from Tyrone, Eoghan Ruadh Dungannon who were present on the night.  The North Antrim Chairman went on to say a lot of hard work has been put into the year making it a success by club administrators, club coaches, and players alike.  This for him is why the North Antrim Divisional Board is such a success year in year out.


The board is only there because the clubs want it.  Its function is to provide meaningful competitive and most importantly regular matches at U12, U14, U16 and U18 levels as well as organising blitzes for U8, U10, U11 and U13 not forgetting our incredibility successful Junior League and Adult knockout competitions which conclude in the Fies na nGleann weekend where 12 finals are played inside 2 ½ days.  The North Antrim Chairman feels the reason why North Antrim is so strong in its function and so respected in the County is because of the unprecedented co-operation among the clubs where they come together with the common goal of raising their own club’s standards by co-operating with the rival clubs.  He went on to say this unselfish act is truly commended and is a great source of pride for all North Antrim Gaels.


The North Antrim Chairman talked about the incredibly successful North Antrim Festival of Hurling for our U10, U11, U12 and U13 players where they competed with teams from Kilkenny, Galway, Dublin and Derry over a 2-day event.  At the U13 level the Arthur Forstyhe Trophy was competed and presented for the very first time.


He congratulated St Louis, Ballymena and St Killians for bridging a long gap and winning the Mageean and McNamee Cups respectability.


Stand out memoirs for the North Antrim Chairman this year where Cross and Passion in their All-Ireland Achievement.  The monsoon rain, thunder and lightning on Feis Sunday.  Carey v St Brigids in the Senior Feis Semi-Final.  The 9K raised for charity at the Semi-Final of the Championship between Shamrocks and Ruairi Og.  The never say die attitude of the Ruairi Og Senior team and the success of Creggan on the Ulster Championship.  He wished good luck to both Creggan and Ruairi Og in the All Ireland series and to the two North Antrim clubs competing in the All County Minor Finals.


The North Antrim Chairman finished off by thanking his fellow executive members for tonight and support throughout the year, our current sponsors, the staff of the Glens Hotel and to all the clubs whishing them a successful 2016 on and off the field.
