Presentations were also made to Helen McSweeney and Maura Leahy who both stepped down from the committee after many years of service. Speaking in a tribute to the retiring sisters Danny McCarthy said both Maura and Helen were responsible for the rejuvenation of the Juvenile Section of the club that when they came on board thirteen years ago there were only a handful of juveniles from a small number of families involved. Through their hard work and dedication they have built it up to the thriving and successful club that it is today. They will be greatly missed not only by Midleton AC but by the whole athletics community.
