Great night was had by all at the Gala Ball in CIty North

Well we ended the year on a high note with Michael Lyster taking us through the 125th celebrations at the Gala Ball in the City North Hotel on Sat. 10th Nov. We had a great turnout and the style was fab along with the entertainment from Electric Avenue and a wonderful meal. Thanks to all the organizers for a great night and a special thanks to Brien Phillips chairman & Aisling Murphy secretary of the development committee for all their great work during this busy year. 

The followings awards were presented on the night:

Minor Player of the Year 2012- Conor Barton
Senior Men Player of the Year 2012- James Murray
Ladies Senior Player of the Year 2012 - Maura Lynch

This year we had a Special Recognition Award presented to Margaret Phillips for all her hard work getting the Ladies section of the club started in 1999 and getting it to such a high standard. This year alone we had 4 Blues ladies representing Louth in the All Ireland Junior Final earlier this year and this part of the club is going from strength to strength.

The Newtown Blues presented 4 legends of our club's history with a special award. Jim 'Blackie' Judge, Liam Leech, Jimmy Mulroy and Matt Murphy all recieved a memento on their wonderful achievement of being in possession of 9 Louth Senior Championship winners medals. This record is unlikely to be ever broken. The award was presented to them and their families.

Thanks to all that have supported the club this year and we look forward to another great year in 2013.

Pics to come soon.
