When Bill Hill runs in the next General Election, Rathnew will most definitely be where he goes to get a few votes and more importantly a few campaign managers!! With a whopping 2,704 Votes, Rathnew have been crowned Bills Best Supported Club in County Wicklow. Not sure the exact figures of the last census but the village of Rathnew has either been riding like rabbits or they found more votes from around the world by calling in favours and that’s the reason serious credit is due to the hard working Villagers like Vivienne O’Neill, Aoife Murphy, Shauna Sayer (Thrilldo Inventor) and their minions for pulling out all the stops for their club. In taking the win Rathnew pipped their near neighbours and intense rivals St Pats who weighed in with 2,242 votes of their own to claim the runner up spot and the likes of Patriece Evans, Tara Gorman and Co. can be very proud of their efforts. There was also impressive displays from many of the smaller clubs who well outperformed their numbers and some with a little bit of work to do!
