A civic reception was held in the Armagh City Hotel to celebrate the success of the Armagh ladies football team as All-Ireland Intermediate Champions of 2012. The young champions relived the magical memories of their run to Mary Quinn Cup glory in the company of family and friends. Hosted by the three Councils whose districts provided players to the squad, Armagh, Craigavon and Newry and Mourne, the event formally recognised the achievement of a highly successful side. The reception was also attended by Sinn Féin councillors Terry Hearty, Anthony Flynn and Deputy Mayor of Newry and Mourne council Packie McDonald. MP Conor Murphy was also there on the night to commend the success of the Armagh ladies football team. Speaking to Newry Times, Mr Murphy said, “It is great to be here tonight to celebrate the success of the Armagh ladies as the All-Ireland Intermediate Champions of 2012. “I would like to congratulate everyone on this strong team including their coaches, all those in the background who played a pivotal part with their exceptionally hard work, time and effort which they put in all year round. The display of passion from these ladies leaves me in no doubt that they will be back next year with just as much vigour.” Councillor Anthony Flynn spoke of his admiration for the Armagh ladies football team, and said, “It takes a lot of effort and discipline to be as successful as this team, I want to say well done to all the players and they are a credit to the county.”
