BSJ Person of the Year 2022

Ballinteer St Johns Person of the Year 2022 is Sean Lane.

In the past I and previous Chairpersons have used this opportunity to acknowledge special contributions people have made to our club. Last year Kieran Brennan was deservedly the recipient of the BSJ person of the year. This year the award goes to an equally deserving club person. Rather than apply my words I will paraphrase those of a grateful parent whose son is one of many over the last 20 years to benefit from the inspired coaching and management of tonight’s recipient.
It is always hard to completely encapsulate the thoughts, feelings and impact that someone has had on one’s life. Without a shadow of a doubt, he has had a profound positive impact on our boys lives from professional to personal.
A true ambassador for our club, there aren’t enough words to do this man justice. He has taken the concept of giving back to the highest level.
As a leader he is a great role model teaching our boys to take control, empowering them to become leaders.
He has created memories for life for the boys, team building days out, off pitch training, swimming, boxing. Not to mention the Championship win with each boy presented with framed photo of the team.
In a nutshell he is a rare gem, a fantastic manager and his time with our boys has been invaluable source of inspiration.
In addition to this
Hurling Board delegate
Member of hurling committee
Member of hurling subcommittee Finance
Member of hurling subcommittee Senior Manager recruitment
Member of ball wall committee
Juvenile hurling coordinator
Minor Football Manager
Minor hurling Manager
Hurling analyst for Sunshine FM and the Evening Herald

Over four decades he has  won 10 county championships and 8 county leagues. Also, in that period managed Dublin minor and u21 hurling teams, winning the u21 Leinster Championship in 2007 which was the first time in 35 years.
Ladies and Gentleman our BSJ Person of the year 2022 is the one and only Sean Lane.
