Crokes receive Sevens Systems boost
THE Kilmacud Crokes Camogie Sevens holds special memories for Eve Talbot.
"It is such a prestigious competition," she declares.
"I have played in it and managed in it, and it is always a super day out," she adds.
"Crokes put a massive effort into it. A Kilmacud Sevens medal is to be valued. It is really an All-Ireland medal."
Clubs are coming from the four provinces and London too.
The hosts got good tidings from new sponsor, John O'Leary of SE Systems, who stated: "We'd like to think that this could be a long-term relationship."
"We are delighted to be associated with such a top quality event.
"It is an integral part of the All-Ireland weekend. Players and supporters come from all over Ireland." SE Systems are based in Cork city. They are one of Ireland's leading installers of Energy Saving Measures to private industry , social housing and community groups.
John is the brother-in-law of the legendary Linda Mellerick.
"Camogie plays a big part in our house and it's nice now to be able to put something back," adds John.
