Visit of the Jack Mc Grath and O’ Duffy Cups

On Thursday September 29th we had a very special visitor. Aine Fahey, captain of the winning Intermediate team 2016, came to The Pres with the Jack Mc Grath and the O’Duffy Cups. Mrs Moran our brilliant M.C.,gave us all the information about both cups. The O’ Duffy Cup was presented to the Kilkenny Senior Champions and the Jack Mc Grath Cup was presented to the Intermediate Champions this September.
