The 2015 LCU&SA annual dinner was held in the surroundings of Leinster Cricket Club on Friday night, and the wine and stories were flowing.
The dinner also serves as the prize giving for the preceding year, and seven awards were handed out by President, Martin Block.
The Bill Frindall Award, presented to those scorers who have excelled was presented to Lorraine McKeaney of Malahide, whilst the President's award was presented to long time Treasurer, and former umpire, Norman Adams.
The two Fair Play awards went to cousins, as the Dickie Spence Award went to Eoghan Delany (Clontarf) as the one player who Division 1 and 2 umpires felt contributed most to the Spirit of Cricket. The Sean Pender Award for fair play in the divisions below 2, went to Gareth Delany of Leinster.
A new set of awards were created in 2013, with umpires being awards long service awards for 100, 250 and 500 matches. For one reason and another, three were missed last year, and Alan Tuffery (right) and David Walsh picked up their 500 match awards, and current Cricket Leinster President, Roland Bradley was also presented with his long service award.
