Last night (July 20th) I hosted my first civic reception. Letterkenny Town Council extended it’s highest honour to Letterkenny Rovers, in recognition of both their recent success in the Ulster Senior League and the years of hard work and commitment they have put in to helping the youth of Letterkenny.
As I mentioned in my speech (full text here), I’m not the most gifted footballer, but even I have seen first-hand the excellent work that Rovers do with the youth of the town.
The reception was very well attended, by players and supporters, by councillors and former councillors and many other people. The evening went very well, and was a credit to the club and all they’ve achieved.
