Carnew Emmets Juvenile AGM
Scoil Aodán Naofa was the venue for this year’s Carnew Emmets Juvenile AGM which was held on Friday January 6th at 8pm. A word of thanks to the management for the use of the facilities. There was a good attendance to hear outgoing chairman Maurice Molloy open the meeting by welcoming all present. He then passed over to Maurice Sheil, juvenile secretary, to give his annual report. Quite a successful year on the playing field with the highlight being the winning of the féile cup after an absence of 30 years. He covered a number of topics from games, pitch development and funding events to the year’s awards nights.
In his parting address outgoing chairman Maurice Molloy thanked everyone for their assistance during his tenure and spoke of his enjoyment of his time in the role. He was congratulated by the club and wished all the best for the future. Kenneth Redmond was then nominated and seconded as the new chairman who was thrown in straight away to chair a lively meeting. He covered many topics as per the secretary’s agenda such as New Age Structure, Féile 2017, Cross Border Leagues and his hopes and aspirations for the future of the club.
One of the most important items on the agenda was child welfare and, at this point, the secretary called on Máire Doyle, Children’s Officer, to speak. Garda vetting was high on her priority list, as were training and Codes of Conduct which must be signed by all parents before the season begins.
