Aine Shanley, club PRO and player on the Ladies Team departed the club in September. Aine Shanley was instrumental in the setting up of the Ladies Team, captained the Ladies Team, was heavily involved in fundraising for the club and for the last year held the position of PRO for Carrick RFC. The Club would like to wish her every success on and off the field, and to acknowledge and thank her for her hard work and dedication to the Club over the last four years.
