Our AGM will take place in February and voting papers for a new committee will be distributed on 5th January.


At a very well attended A.G.M last Thursday in the Community Complex a review of a very successful years activities both on and off the field was given by outgoing Chairman Liam Keenan.  Liam Keenan who had completed a very successful three year term handed over the running of the Club to newly elected Chairman Kevin Mann.  We would like to wish Kevin well in his new role as Club Chairman.
