AN incredible haul of trophies won during 2010 and already in 2011 were on display in the Bloomfield House Hotel in Mullingar last weekend as Rhode GAA celebrated the club’s most recent successes.

AN incredible haul of trophies won during 2010 and already in 2011 were on display in the Bloomfield House Hotel in Mullingar last weekend as Rhode GAA celebrated the club’s most recent successes.

The original Dinner Dance had to be postponed but last weekend the club’s players and supporters finally got together to recognise the achievements.

In 2010 Rhode won the double at Senior level claiming the Dowling Cup yet again for winning the Senior Championship while the Casey Cup for the Division 1 League also made its way to the Village.

The minors of the parsih added the county championship to the list while earlier this year the Under 21s of the parish added yet another piece of silverware to the already glittering collection of trophies.

A good crowd was in attendance on the night and the focus now switches to retaining the Senior and Minor titles as the club looks to put together a full set of titles in 2011.
