Spirit of the Final Award - Rachael Harkin

Dec 30, 2015

With 2015 coming to a close, it is timely to reflect on our achievements in the past year. One of the outstanding highlights for Rathbeggan was the success of our girls football team, winning the Girls Division 2/3 Shield Final. This was bravely contested by St. Annes Navan, but with a superior Rathbeggan side triumphing with a 5-3 to 2-2 win.   One of our players, Rachael Harkin, displayed an outstanding performance on the night, scoring a hugely impressive 4 goals and 2 points.  

Rachael deservedly was awarded The Meath Chronicle/Generali Pan Europe Spirit of the Final Award. This award recognises an individual player in each of the finals who displays qualities of character, skill, determination and motivation. Rachael along with her parents John and Geraldine as well as Ms. Devine attended the award ceremony on Wednesday 9th of December in the Ardboyne Hotel, Navan.  A huge well done to Rachael on her fabulous achievement and we look forward to more sporting achievements in the New Year!
