I want to thank you for your hospitality. It was a very well organised competition. Your club members did a great job and were very welcoming. Our boys thoroughly enjoyed their day and went home with a smile on their face. We hope to be back next year.

We want to thank you for the invitation to compete in the tournament. We would also like to congratulate and compliment you on a well-run event. All our players and coaches really enjoyed the day. Hope we get the opportunity to attend next year.
Thanks for the tournament on Saturday past. The kids had a ball. Fair play to An Riocht – the organisation and facilities are first class. Just how you manage 32 teams as efficiently as that is a tribute to you all. Thanks again. Hopefully be back again next year.
I’d like to thank you for Saturday’s matches, the kids had a great time. As usual a really well run tournament.
