Brian Dillons Camogie Club has been awarded with the Northside District Sports Award for the month on February.
Following on from the success of the club in 2012, the award was well deserved for all the players, coaches, mentors, parents and supporters. The award was presented to President Con Ahern at the Ambassador Hotel on Friday the 8th March.
Deputy Lord Mayor Cllr Joe Kavanagh congratulated the Camogie Club and said Dillons were a beacon of light on the northside and he personally has seen the passion of the camogie girls for their club.
Marion McCarthy Chairperson of the Cork Camogie Board also congratulated the club on their tremendous year and recognised the commitment of Mary O Sullivan and Liz O Mahoney.
Noel Keoghane Chairman of Brian Dillons Hurling and Football Club said the award was well deserved and the club was going from strenght to strenght.
Mary O Sullivan Chairperson of Brian Dillons Camogie Club said she was very proud to accept the award. She thanked the sponsors, Gurranabraher Credit Union, Ambassodor Hotel and Red FM. The judges under Sean O Sullivan were thanked for their work. The results achieved by the Junior A and U 16 teams were exceptional and she praised John Ring and Linda Mellerick for their professional approach. Mary quoted Mohammid Ali who said
'Champions are made from something they have deep inside them, a desire, a dream, a vision', there lies the reason for Dillons success.  Mary outlined that Camogie gives our girls of all ages the opportunity to participate in sport, exercise, compete, improve their skills, make friends and have memories for the rest of their lives. She
stressed that' it is very important to love your chosen sport, never do it it for someone else, it has to be yours'.
The camogie committee were also present in force and a very enjoyable evening was had by all. Roll on 2013.
