And the season was made all the more special given that the Glenanne Men’s firsts had captured the EY Hockey League while the seconds raised the Irish Junior Cup.

Awards were presented on the night and among the recipients were Kate O’Connor (Ladies Player of the Year), Sinead Jones (Ladies Top Goalscorer), Catherine McManus (Ladies Person of the Year), Iain Walker (Men’s Player of the Year), Shane O’Donoghue (Men’s Top Goalscorer), Gerry Shaw (Men’s Person of the Year) and David Keogh (Volunteer of the Year).
