On Friday December 8th 2006 The Lord Mayor of Cork, Cllr. Michael Ahern and Cork City Council held a Civic Reception honouring the Cork Senior Camogie and Cork Senior Ladies Football Teams, winners of both the 2005 and 2006 Senior All-Ireland titles, at a reception in the Council Chamber, City Hall, Cork .

Speaking at the event the Lord Mayor paid tribute to the players of both teams not just for their sporting prowess but also as role models.

“It gives me and this Council great pleasure to honour your achievements of the past two years. These achievements are unprecedented in the history of your games and by repeating your successes of 2005 in 2006 you surpassed the achievements of your male counterparts who won both All Irelands in the year 1990.

On behalf of the people of this city I thank you for the great enjoyment you have given us over the two years. Ta bród orainn go léir ós rud é go bhfuil sibh go h-iontach ní h-amháin mar imréoirí ach mar daoine dichileach speisíalta freisin. We, as Corkonians, are very proud of you not just for your achievements on the field but also for the very special qualities you bring to your duties off the field as well.”

The Lord Mayor also presented specially commissioned commemorative silver medallions to the panels of both teams, management and Board officials, presenting those seven players who were members of both panels individual gold plated medallions recognising the unique nature of their success in both codes.
