A big crowd gathered in the Abbey on the evening of June 6th for a special occassion: the prize-giving ceremony for the Clane and Rathcoffey Community Games 2012. Dozens of young men and women were awarded gold, silver and bronze medals by the Community Games organising committee and there were smiles all around.
In a few short weeks we are going to be cheering on men and women wearing the Irish colours on an international stage. Perhaps in a few short years we will be cheering on some of the wonderful young athletes photographed below.
Well done to everyone who participated. A special thanks to all the Mums and Dads and Guardians that supported their children in the games, and to the hard-working Community Games sub-committee that organised and ran the event.
Best of luck to those that will represent Clane and Rathcoffey in the Kildare county finals.
