AGG Closing Ceremony, Hong Kong

At the AGG Closing Ceremony in Hong Kong on 26 September 2010, the Viet Celts won the Asian Club of the Year 2010 award.

The Viet Celts also picked up three Asian All-Stars for outstanding performances by Nguyen Ngoc Quynh, Tara MacMahon and Claire Coughlan.

Later on, the Viet Celts presented an award to Micheal O’Muircheartaigh on the occasion of the 1000 years celebration of Hanoi coinciding with his retirement and the fact that he always has a chat with our Vietnamese players when he meets us at the AGGs.

This award for Micheal was organised by Lana Le and funded by Bob Patterson so thanks to both of them. Also many thanks to professional photographer, Markus Steffen who followed our three teams throughout the weekend and apart from the badly taken one above, provided all the photos seen in the Hong Kong posts.

Special praise must go to Hong Kong GAA club and the ACB for an exceptionally well organised and enjoyable weekend. The whole thing ran like clockwork apart from Batman losing the plot near the end of the closing ceremony.
