Club AGM
Our AGM took place on Friday night last in Ballinroad Hall with a very good crowd in attendance.  The first item in the agenda was the Treasure's Report and as normal Packie Hurney presented an excellent set of accounts which that despite the significant costs associated with running the club remains in a healthy financial position. Packie thanked all those who help to raise money for the club as without these hardworking volunteers the club couldn't continue to exist.
Next on the agenda was our Secretary Tomás Kiely's report. This was a thorough review of what was a most successful year for the club. Tomás offered some thoughts on what lies ahead for the club in the years ahead. There was widespread praise for Tomás as he announced he would be stepping down as club secretary due to work commitments in Dublin. Whilst Tomás is a huge loss to the club we are most fortune that Jonathan O’Donovan will be returning as Club Secretary.  Our Club Chairman Michael Briggs then addressed the meeting and in a wide-ranging address Michael congratulated all the club teams who had tasted success in the last 12 months, a year that will him down as one of the most successful in the club's history.  Michael thanked all those who gave of their time helping the club during the year before going onto outline the work our Development Committee have carried out in the last 12 months.  It is hoped that after our club surveys have been returned the Development Committee will then work on devising a development plan for the club.
The following officers were then elected:-

Chairman: Michael Briggs
Vice Chairman: Michael Cosgrave
Secretary: Jonathan O’Donovan
Treasurer: Packie Hurney
Membership Officer: Kevin Tobin
PRO: Neil Moore
Children's Officer: Bríd Slevin
Healthy Club Officer: Eamonn Cashin
Juvenile Chairman: Joe Cleary
