MIC Applauds its Hurling Heroes

Mary Immaculate College welcomed home its victorious Senior Hurling Team, Fitzgibbon Cup champions 2016, at a special event held in the College on Thursday 10th March.

The team made history on Saturday 27th February when they beat UL in an epic final to secure the Fitzgibbon Cup for the first time ever. Congratulating the players Prof. Michael A Hayes, President of MIC, said "For a College with just 3,600 students to secure such a title is a wonderful achievement. Your determination and tenacity during the match was inspiring, and after two periods of extra time, you truly were deserving victors. We are all very proud of you”.

However, as the President observed teams like this do not become champions without excellent management and support, and so he acknowledged the back room team and the staff of the Sports Office and the GAA Development Office who supported the team to their victory.  In particular he paid tribute to
Eamonn Cregan, for his work and dedication to the team and to the College for the past 23 years and wished him every happiness in his retirement.

The President also announced details of a forthcoming Fitzgibbon Cup Black Tie Victory Dinner which will take place on Thursday 21st April in the Castletroy Park Hotel.  A limited number of tickets will go on sale on Tuesday 22nd March and may be purchased for €50 per ticket from 061-400013.
