Result: Eric’s photo won with 36% of the vote 🙂
SportsJOE have a competition as to who had the best amateur GAA images of 2016. From the middle-aged dad contemplating one more time round the GAA sun, to the fan asleep in the ditch, the umpire taking snaps in a blizzard or the TV-watching lamb.
Our own Eric Hickey is one of the final twelve with his photo that was “Taken April in Ballydesmond while I was umpire”.
He needs your votes to win the prize, so go to SportsJOE and vote for the “Ballydesmond Blizzard”. (He’s not doing too bad at the moment with 40% of the vote already).
Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a Cairde and welcome to my final report of 2016.
