BUCCANEERS PLAYERS OF THE YEAR AWARDS NIGHT takes place on Saturday week May 14th. No venue in Athlone was available for the chosen date so this event will be held in the Shearwater Hotel, Ballinasloe. Four Player of the Year Awards are up for grabs as well as the accolade of Buccaneers Club Person of the year with the winners being announced on the night. Club players who represented Ireland will also be honoured at the event. We can count on the ladies to dress smartly for the occasion and will expect the guys to do likewise; “smart casual — no jeans”! There will dancing after the awards presentations which will follow a 4-course dinner. Tickets cost only €40 each and can be purchased by contacting our Administrator Geraldine at 0861732711.

Early booking is recommended for this event which will celebrate a highly successful season for Buccaneers.
