For the first time ever, our Underage Players took part in the St Patricks Day Parade in Cork City. Dressed in their Dillons colours, close on 45 girls represented our Club and they did us proud. The U10's were high as a kite with excitement while the U16's who were at bit more subdued, showed off their skills to the large attendance. A great day out and great exposure for our Club. Thanks to all our girls who were extreemely well behaved. Thanks also to the parents for their attendance and support. All the preparation was well worth the effort and a million thanks to Karen, Cathriona, Mary and Niall. Please log on to Camogie Photos.

Our annual Christmas Party was held on Saturday last and it was a huge success. There was a great turnout of underage players and a great time was had by all. There was music from D.J Aaron and plenty of sweets and treats. Santa arrived and there were selection boxes for all. A big thank you to all the committee for all their efforts.
Our 2016 Awards Night as expected was a tremendous success. A great turnout and great excitement in advance of the awards. Secretary Yvonne was the MC. Coach Johnny was first up with under 12's. He spoke of his pride in coaching such a great bunch of players. The most improved player went to Sofie Porter. Next up was coach Susan Kate. She said the U12 Player of the Year was brilliant on and off the pitch and she lit up their training sessions. The award went to Ruby O Connell. For the U14 and U16 next up was coach Dave. The U14 most improved player he said was growing in confidence and he could see that during the year in training. The award went to Aine O Hara. Dave said the U14 player of the year was full of energy and attitude and was good at introducing the opposition to the Welcome to the Tank Field Tackle. The award went to Rebecca Barry. The U16's were next. Dave described the most improved player as a hard worker who did extra sessions to improve her skills and who went on to make some world class saves. The winner was Abbie O Farrell. The U16 player of the year was described as an outstanding trainer, always encouraging and played realy well all year particularly in the championship. The winner was Anna Myers. Our President Con Ahern then presented trophies to those who represented Cork this year which included Olivia GIbson, Eve O Connor, Mollie Garvin, Shannyn McHale, Sinead Mills, Essie O Connell and Niamh O Leary. Next up it was yours truly who outlined the Minor and Senior season which must go down as a success particularly for the Seniors as it was our first year at this level. Paul Mills introduced the Minor player of the year. The award was judged on training, respect and performance. The winner was Stephanie Mangan. Coach Kieran then introduced the Senior player of the year. He spoke about her commitment and all the extra training sessions she did all year. The winner was Clair Dooley and it was richly deserved. The players then made presentations to their respective coaches and mentors which was a nice touch. Chairperson Veronica was next up to announce the Club Person of the Year. This award was only going to one person, the man that does so much for our Club, day in, day out and without any fuss. The winner was Niall McGloughlin and he recieved his award to rapturous applause. Niall then gave us a great speech that he was on the decline but thankfully not at Dillons, he's going nowhere. Tom Browne then presented both Senior and Minor players with jackets with the Dillons Camogie Logo which were sponsored by Denis Cusack which are very much appreciated. Some hot food arrived from Apache and great craic followed. Once again a great night and an important occassion in our calender to recognise all the great work thats going on in our great club.
Our Annual Awards Night is on this Friday November 2nd at the Tank at 7pm sharp. Don't miss it.
Our 2016 Awards Night is scheduled to take place in the Club on Friday December 2nd. Once again it will be one of the highlights of the year and is a night not to be missed.
Our U13 team have won the Seandun Shield and are worthy champions. Played in Castle Road, they were up against a fancied Na Piarsaigh team but Dillons wanted this shield more. We were outstanding in the first half. A goal from our impressive centre forward Aine and a point from the classy Olivia G were decisive. We played out of our skin and restricted Na Piarsaigh to just two points. Cameron on goal did everything asked of her with a clean sheet. Our defence of captain Clare, Kelly and Aoife were absolutely brilliant. Our half backs of Ellen, Leah and Zoe were outstanding. Olivia and Ruby's speed around the middle of the field was incredible. Courtney, Jane and Aine battled and fed the full forwards of Olivia, Tara and Chloe who gave it their all. Emily, Zoe B and Sinead came on and worked hard. Niamh, Sophie who unfortunately is injured and Ciara were also there to collect their well earned medals. Ellen was awarded the player of the match. Johnny, Liz and Susan Kate couldn't be prouder of all the girls and its great to finish the season with a trophy. Dillons Abu.
