On Saturday, March 6th, 2010 Roscrea and the wider community came together in large numbers to recognise the sporting achievement of those from the area who have reached their highest echelons in their chosen sport. 

The major sponsor again this year was Rosderra Meats (formerly Glanbia) who have sponsored the event for the past few years and without this support R.C.T.L.C. acknowledge that it would not be possible to continue staging these sports awards on an annual basis. 

Hall of Fame Award----------Eamon England

Eamonn is a native of Cooleshall, Roscrea. His father, Tim, won a junior hurling medal with Camross in 1928. Eamonn himself began his hurling career in the street leagues in Roscrea. In 1956, while only 15 he helped Killavilla to their first Offaly junior title. He was an Offaly minor in 1957, 1958, and 1959.

Athletics Award.........Ailbhe Carroll

Ailbhe is 18 years old, and presently studying Sports and Exercise science in the University of Limerick.   Her ambition is to be a professional athlete and in time coach other athletes and help them achieve their dreams and goals.

As a child she played camogie with Roscrea and Tipperary, and was involved with horses for nine years. She accidentally took up running and randomly stumbled across triathlon. She liked the two so much she decided to give up camogie and horse riding and give the other two her undivided attention.

Ailbhe Carroll accepts the RCTLC Athletics Sports Award on Saturday evening last.


Pat O’Halloran (Rosderra), Ailbhe Carroll, Bishop Willie Walsh and Rev Trevor Williams

It wasn’t until 6th year that she actually became a member of Templemore athletics club and competed in both cross-country and on track for a proper season.  Ailbhe competed at both U18 and U19 level where she finished well in most of these races from county to All Ireland level. The first race of the season was the U18 county cross country where she finished 4th, followed by the U19 where she finished 3rd. Qualifying on the county team in both the U18 and U19 Munster races meant we were off to the All Irelands in both age groups.  Being injured through all of these races made the experience a little less enjoyable but Tipperary still managed to bring home a silver medal in the U19 All Ireland. The schools cross country season kicked off then where once again she finished in 4th place and her school team got the silver medal. The Munster schools saw her finish in 8th place and their team brought home the silver medals again. Unfortunately their luck was to run out as they ran in the All Ireland. They missed out on the team medal by one spot to finish in 4th place.
The indoor season both school and club level took place then. She didn’t race too many indoor races due to her injury but she finished 3rd in the 1500m Munster indoors, and 2nd and 3rd in the schools 600m and 1200m respectively. 
Her outdoor season was short lived unfortunately. The only meet Ailbhe managed to take part in, was held in her own club, Templemore, in April, and she finished 2nd there in the 800m.

After the athletics season ended, Ailbhe concentrated on triathlons, where she had a very successful season finishing top of her age group in the national series. She was presented with an award for winning her age group. The highlight of last season was competing in the European age group duathlon championship in Budapest where she finished first in her age group and brought a gold medal back home.   Now Ailbhe is presently recovering from an injury that took her out of competition for 5 months. She is slowly getting back into a good training regime and has hopes of making the Irish development squad in April.

Club of the Year Award-----------Borris-in-Ossory GAA


After reaching the final for two years running the intermediates began their league campaign in the senior ranks for 2009.  With their first match on the 3rd of May against Abbeyleix they came out convincing winners, they gained valuable experience from the senior league which was to stand to them at later stages, playing tougher opponents and faster games.  They bowed out of the league against The Harps with their sights and determination set firmly on the Heathering Cup which had previously eluded them.  They opened their championship run with a great win over Camross on the 24th of July, and next defeated Mountmellick on August 27th.  This left them top of their group and reaching the knock out stages to meet Clough/Ballacolla in the quarter final.  They overcame Ballacolla gallantly to land a semi-final spot against a much tougher Clonad, after a hard fought game with a final score of 2-16 top 3-11 they came out on top, delighted to be back in the final for a third year running but anxious to finally see it through.  The final was set for Sunday the 11th of October against Ballyfin and proved to be a close affair.  Both teams came out fighting from the start but it was Borris who had the edge and determination to see it through on the day.  There was great joy and celebrations after the final whistle blew and they came away with a three point win.  It was a long road from February when training began and two tough years and defeats behind them, a monumental effort and determination was put in during the year and finally paid off.  Congratulations to all involved most notably captain Ronan Kelly and his team, Manager Jack Walsh and selectors Edmund Sheeran and Brendan Dollard.

Borris In Ossory GAA Club was voted RCTLC “Club Of The Year”.  Chairman Cathal O’Donnell received the award on the club’s behalf.


Pat O’Halloran (Rosderra), Cathal O’Donnell, Bishop Willie Walsh and
Rev Trevor Williams

The Borris/Kilcotton minors also had a gallant year and can look back on 2009 with pride after also claiming the championship title, they overcame tough opponents in Abbeyleix/Ballypickas and Portlaoise to meet Clough/Ballacolla in the final and after a fantastic match with great hurling on both sides they emerged winners by a 3-point victory.

The U14 year started with preparation of the Feile na Gael.  Their visiting team for the weekend was St. Jude’s from Dublin.  They qualified for the quarter final only to loose to the eventual champions Portlaoise.  They also reached the League Final where they were again beaten by Portlaoise in extra time.  They reached the Championship Final where again their opponents were Portlaoise and after a great display of hurling they emerged as winners beaten this much fancied Portlaoise side.

The U16 team made history this year by becoming the first U16 team to win a U16A Championship by beating strong favourites Clough/Ballacolla in a thrilling final.

Special Recognition Award----------Bishop Willie Walsh

Bishop Willie Walsh hails from Roscrea parish and has always had a huge interest in sport, principally hurling. His presence at most of the RCTLC Sports Stars awards presentation nights is ample proof of his tremendous enthusiasm for sport while his encouraging words to awards recipients are always so much appreciated.
While on the teaching staff of St Flannan's College in Ennis he masterminded several Harty Cup and All-Ireland colleges victories along with Fr Seamus Gardiner, now P.P Portroe. Such was the quality of his work, the shrewdness of his sideline tactics that it came as little surprise that his services should have been sought by Clare management teams.

Bishop Willie Walsh who was guest of honour at the RCTLC Sports awards on Saturday evening last was also a recipient of the annual “Special Recognition” award and is pictured here receiving that award from RCTLC Chairman, Mr John Lupton.


Pat O’Halloran (Rosderra), John Lupton (RCTLC), Bishop Willie Walsh and Rev Trevor Williams.

When Tipp's Len Gaynor took over management of the Clare senior team in the early 1990s, he had the then Fr Willie by his side. He might well have been there in that capacity in Clare's historic break-through year, 1995, only that his appointment to the See of Killaloe made it impossible for him to continue.   
Bishop Willie has always had a keen interest in golf and and he prepares to step down from the diocesan duties that have kept him so busy for the past fifteen years, perhaps he will find more time in which to indulge his love for the game.

Friends and supporters of Joanne Mann and Pat Sheedy were out in force on Saturday evening last to congratulate both on receiving
RCTLC Sports Awards.
