Cork City Council hosts Civic Reception for Nemo Rangers GAA Club

The Lord Mayor of Cork, Cllr. Brian Bermingham, and Cork City Council hosted a Civic Reception in City Hall, Cork on 6th April 2009 for Nemo Rangers GAA Club to mark the club’s victory in the Munster Senior Football Championship 2008.

The Lord Mayor congratulated the club on their ongoing success based on their commitment to the game at underage level:
“Only last week, despite the bitter cold night, there was nothing to dampen the high spirits of the almost 400 boys and girls who turned out to participate in this year’s festival of Hurling and football. Great credit is due to the organizing committee for their work in preparing this year’s competition and in particular having the opening night under lights.

Fourteen Munster club titles and seven All-Ireland club pennants have made you the kingpins of club football throughout the land. You have provided a host of successful players to county teams including two senior All-Ireland winning captains in former Cork team coach, Billy Morgan and Denis Allen among many others.

 May you continue to enjoy such success in the coming years.”
