The 2011 Offaly GAA Senior Footballer of the Year Richie Dalton picked up another award last weekend when he was chosen as Edenderry GAA Club Senior Footballer of the Year.
The Edenderry captain was a key factor in The Reds return to the top kicking vital points in the final as his side overcame Clara. He is currently recovering from injury and his presence is being greatly missed at inter-county level.
A double award winner on the night was another Offaly panelist who has missed time this year through injury. David Hanlon was chosen as the U-21 Footballer of the Year and he also brought home the award for Junior Hurler of the Year.
The Awards night was held in the Hamlet Hotel in Johnstown and with over 250 attending, a great night was had by all. The club would like to thank John O’Neill and all the staff at the Hamlet as well as everyone who supported the club by attending.
The award recipients on the night were:
Minor ladies Player of the Year: Aisling O’Connor
