O’Daly Festival at Balbriggan RFC

Sunday was a great day at Balbriggan RFC as we hosted the Leinster U12’s O’Daly Festival. 24 teams from all over Leinster took part in the Festival. Even the sun shone to help make our day extra special. All the mum’s who came to Balbriggan RFC today were given a bunch of flowers for Mother’s Day courtesy of the club.
We were delighted that Leinster players, Ian Nagle, Cathal Marsh and Barry Daly, along with Leo the Lion visited Balbriggan RFC to meet all the teams. Thanks to them for taking time out of their busy schedules.
Thanks to St John’s Ambulance for providing assistance on the day.
Marc at Java the Hut kept us in caffeine while Seamus at Froggy’s Crepes made lovely crepes. Thanks to Kate and Hope for running the tuck shop on the day. Thanks also to David and all the team at Fruit Shoot Ireland for providing Fruit Shoot Hydro drinks for all the teams. Thanks to John Doran and Adrian Mooney for the gazebo’s. John was here bright and early this morning to put up the gazebos at all the pitches.
A special mention must go to Gerry Buckley and Moriarty’s SuperValu Balbriggan, who made a beautiful cake to mark the occasion. We are really grateful to Lily Darcy who made all the sandwiches for the day.
The day would not have been such a success without the help of a number of people. Thanks to all those who did so much work behind the scenes to prepare the grounds for the Festival. The grounds really looked fantastic. We would also like to thank the volunteers who helped with traffic management. Thanks to Paul Downes for putting up the scaffolding for the group photo. Thanks to pitch co-ordinators Harley Harold, Gerry McCleery and Mal Malone.
None of this would have materialised without the efforts of Balbriggan RFC’s Mini’s Co-Ordinator Eamon Darcy. He put in a huge amount of work to ensure that the day was a success.
Finally, thanks to all the teams who travelled to Balbriggan RFC, despite the clocks going forward and also that it was Mother’s Day. We really appreciate your efforts that helped make the day the success that it was.
