2/11/11 – 2011 Roundup

Cúchulainn Rounders Club ended the 2011 season on a high with three club members being awarded All Star Awards.  Matty Dowling, Kenneth Nolan & Colm Brennan will be presented with their awards at a gala function in the Green Isle Hotel at the end of November.  Unfortunately our Senior Men’s team were beaten in the All Ireland Semi Final by Limekiln (Dublin) but our Senior Mixed team brought home All Ireland silver medals being beaten by a strong team from The Heath (Laois).
