Almost 600 people attended the All Ireland Fund-Raising Corporate Dinner in Cillín Hill on Saturday night. A superb four course meal was served by the staff of Langtons at Cillin Hill with the entire cost being borne by Eamonn Langton. After dinner County Board Chairman Ned Quinn introduced the keynote speaker Siobhán Talbot MD of our main sponsors Glanbia. This was followed by interviews of Minor Team Manager Pat Hoban and Senior Team Manager Brian Cody by Brendan Hennessy of KCLR.
