Local Clubs AGM

E-mail Print PDF

The AGM of the local GAA Club took place in the meeting room on Friday night last. About 20 members in all attended, which was somewhat on the small side. Chairman Martin Cody presided. Elected to administer the club for the coming year were Chairman Martin Cody, Vice Chairmen Dick Egan and Lance Vaughan, Sec. Eddie McCarthy, Treasurer Albert Curran and PRO Jackie Bolger. Written reports were presented by the Secretary and by the Treasurer.

The Secretary’s report showed that the club had engaged in over 20 championship football and hurling games during 2013 at minor, U21 and senior level. Only 2 games were won during the year and one was drawn. Not a single game was won in football nor was a game won in minor hurling or football during the year. Managers were appointed to the following teams for 2014. Intermediate football Jackie Bolger, U21 football Johnny Kennedy and senior hurling Sean Foxe and Willie Phelan. The Treasurers report saw a loss in the clubs finances during 2013 in spite of very generous sponsorship from Mullinahone Co-Op. The adjourned AGM will take place in mid January, but prior to it a follow-up meeting to the recent club workshop will take place so that reports from the workshop can be acted upon.

"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."
