On Friday night the AGM of the local GAA club took place in the  complex. It was a well
attended  meeting and members elected were as follows. .
Chairman Willie o Loughlin
Vice Chairman  Mick Evesson
Secretary Padraig  O Connell
Assistant Secretary Denis Mangan
Treasurer  Oisin Doyle
Assistant Treasurer John Gunning
PRO  Paul Whelan
Our outgoing Chairman Kevin Mann thanked everyone who had helped him out in any way during the year and wished Willie the best for the year ahead. He also thanked outgoing Treasurer John Gunning the best and was glad to hear that he would be going to stay on in the background to help out our new man Oisin.
He said he knew it was going to be difficult going forward next year but said the club was in good  hands and hoped  it goes from strength to strength. Everyone in attendance is looking forward to next year and hope to see more players turning up to show everyone this club is not gone away and that we will be looking for  silverware.
The club sends its condolences to the Lambert family on the sudden death of Mick. Ar Dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
