The inaugural Tomas Maguire Tournament was held on Saturday week last in Ardara and turned out to be a great success.
The home side came through to win the first tournament, defeating a gallant Naomh Columba side in the final. Both sides qualified for the final on score difference, such was the closeness of the matches played. The Ardara Minor Board are indebted to all the competing teams for playing some great football in sweltering conditions.
A sincere thanks to anyone who helped out on the day, Umpires, Linesmen, referees, the Ladies in the tearooms and the parents who donated the food for all the teams.
A sincere thanks to, Eileen, Eunan and family for donating such a lovely cup for the occasion. We hope that the competition will go from strength to strength in years to come and it will be a fitting tribute to Tomas and his legacy as a great player.
