Carrick on Shannon’s summer sporting highlight has come to an end with a victorius Castlerea Crushers, under the captaincy of Sean Mc Dermott, coming out on top to defeat Anger Management in the final.  The team have been consistently strong throughout the tournament and showed great spirit.  Thanks to Damien Eames who refereed the final .

Congratulations also to Ladies Player of the tournament – Castlerea’s Emer Casey and Male player of the tournament – Multiple Scorgasms Gareth Gallagher.  All awards were presented at our BBQ in Murtaghs Bar whom we would like to thank for their hospitality.

Many thanks again to the management of Carrick on Shannon Community School and Carrick FC for the use of their facilities this year,  it is very much appreciated.
