Kinsale ladies GAA celebrated their seasonal success with a gala medal presentation at Acton's Hotel on Sunday. It was an opportunity to acknowledge the girls' success for a club now ranked 6th in the county, with over 429 players on its books.

On hand to make the medal presentation was club legend Orla Finn, who recently called time on her inter-county career. Acknowledging the club's importance, Orla said, 'If it weren't for my club, I wouldn't be where I am today. They gave me great encouragement and training, and it all starts with the club and finishes with the club.'
Indeed, Orla's contribution to Cork's success was recognised with a special presentation from the club's chairperson Catherine Murphy. Proceeding the acknowledgement of the prolific former All-Ireland winner, the U12, U14, U16 and minors were all presented with medals. In addition, several players were subsequently honoured for their performances.
