Juvenile AGM

E-mail Print PDF

The AGM of the Juvenile football and hurling club took place on Friday night last in the GAA meeting room. The meeting was well attended. Chairman Declan McNamara presided. Among the attendance were the chairman of the CJ Kickhams senior club Martin Cody and the treasurer of the senior club Albert Curran. Reports were presented by the chairman, secretary and treasurer. The chairman stood down after his years at the top and Victor Direen Clashbeg was elected chairman. Sean Reilly was re-elected treasurer, as was Jackie Bolger re-elected PRO. The secretary Pat Fitzgerald, who also wished to step down is to continue until a new Runai is elected. This is likely to happen at the next meeting of the club which is to take place next week.


Rainfall locally in November amounted to 41.7mm of rain on 12 days. Only 8.4mm fell during the last 19 days of the month. The year’s total rainfall to date is in the region of 650mm (26 inches). Were December to produce the same sort of rainfall as the other 11 months of the year, the yearly total for 2013 will be very low indeed.

"And I wouldn't much care for Sierra Leone, If I hadn't seen Killenaule
And the man that was never in Mullinahone,
Shouldn't say he had travelled at all."
