Our AGM was short but successful and covered all bases. A review was given of the activities during the year, both on and off the field, with the great development work and ongoing maintenance of our fantastic facilities highlighted, as well as the dedication and efforts of all our players on the pitch. At juvenile level, the u15 B team won the league and championship double, while the u13 B won the championship. While these were the only sides who came away with trophies, as was emphasised in the meeting, helping to guide and transition players through from juvenile to adult football is the greatest feat in these age groups. Unfortunately there was no silverware for our adult teams, with the senior team falling at the semi final hurdle in the championship to eventual winners, and so we must knuckle down and go again for 2023.
All management teams, committee members, sponsors and grounds people were thanked for their trojan work during the year.
Shortage of referees was highlighted, something to be addressed by the incoming committee.
The committee was mostly re-elected, the few changes to personnel as follows:
Philomena Gormley becomes the first female president of our club, congratulations on your well deserved honour Philomena, and hopefully you have set a trend for the future.
Francis Hughes replaces Pauric Boyle as the new Players’ Officer, thanks to Pauric for your service. The new Hurling Officer is Stephen Dalton.
Keep free Saturday, 10th December for the reunion of the 1997 winning teams. It is sure to be a great night of craic and reminiscing!
