I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who sent me good wishes on my recent Camogie Volunteer of the year award. Thank you to my family, relatives (at home and abroad especially in New York), club members, neighbours, work colleagues and friends. To Millstreet Camogie Committee, who nominated me for the award. To the Cork Camogie Association who selected me for the award. To all of you who sent me congratulations cards, text messages, beautiful floral bouquets and tweets.
