Trench Cup Winners Honoured at College Reception
At a recent reception hosted by Mary Immaculate College the winners of this year’s Trench Cup Final, MIC Football Team, were presented with medals from the President of the College, Prof. Peadar Cremin.
Prof. Cremin congratulated the players on being the first representatives of the college ever to win the prestigious cup and complimented them on their numerous performances including victory in the final over reigning champions, St. Patricks Training College, Drumcondra.
Captain Andrew O’Regan thanked Prof. Cremin for the support the college gave to the players in their preparations. Continuing he thanked Richard Bowles for training the team and Ciara Cregan and Joe Redington in the organisation of the team. Richard Bowles paid tribute to those in the college who down the years kept the flame of hope flickering when teams were not blessed with the same good fortune as this year. He particularly mentioned Noreen Lynch and Diarmuid O’Driscoll who for years maintained a high motivation among the students in the college towards football.
The Trench cup final was played earlier this year in Carlow against the 2007 winners St. Patrick’s, Drumcondra resulting in a final score of Mary Immaculate College 1 goal 12 points to St. Patrick’s 9 points.
