Aughlisnafin GAC Notes
More Storms Ahead For Dundrum Sea Wall November 5, 2013| Posted by | Comment on More Storms Ahead For Dundrum Sea Wall Comment

Emmett Devlin has stepped down from his position as senior team manager after three seasons at the helm. The senior team have improved year on year in Emmett’s tenure reaching the semi final of the Junior Championship in 2012 and in the season past reached the Junior Feis 7’s final coupled with finishing in their highest league position in Division 3. Emmett leaves with our thanks and best wishes. Whoever comes in to the position will find the team in a far healthier position than when Emmett took the reins three seasons ago. Also thanks to Tommy Byrne, James Quinn and Gerard Lenaghan who have all stepped down from the backroom team.dn_screen
