South West Antrim Celebrate Centenary
11th September 2010
As part of the Centenary Celebrations for South West Antrim a parade followed by a Football, Hurling and Camogie blitz was held in Toome Saturday last. Under 10 and Under 8 teams from all over the South West congregated in Arby's car park shortly before 10.00am. Clooney band lead the way to nearby Erins Own Cargin Club on the Shore Road.

All South West representatives assembled on the pitch in Cargin where South West Secretary Harry Graham officially welcomed everyone. He then thanked the Clooney Band their participation. Football, hurling and Camogie blitz for all under 10 and under 8's followed. Each player received specially commissioned medal to mark the event.

SW Chairman Leo Heatley and the South West committee are to be commended in the running of this event which was run off without a hitch; the weather did however bring proceedings to an abrupt end just before the finish. Erins own Cargin are to be thanked for the use of their facilities with six playing pitches lined out and referees on stand by.

The second part of the celebration will take the form of a dinner in the Elk on Sunday 7th November which will be attended by Christie Cooney. It is essential that clubs be able to support this event.
