AGM 2018
Our Annual General Meeting took place last Sunday in the clubhouse with all club officers giving reports for the 2018 season. The make up the committee is largely the same with Pat McLaughlin chairman, Seamus McLaughlin vice chairman. Brendan Monagle takes over from Linda McColgan as secretary, Elaine McColgan remains as assistant secretary. The club would like to place on record its thanks to Linda and it was included in the chairman’s report what a great a job Linda has done in the club over the last year and number of years in various roles, and we know she will still be involved as much as she can. John Byrne remains as treasurer and is assisted by Margaret Raymond and Susan Byrne.
Paul Gallagher is still Registrar while the club welcome Martin Doherty Edwards back as P.R.O with help from Linda McColgan on Facebook. The minor board has yet to have its agm and the roles of childrens officer, coaching officer and minor board Rep are yet to be ​filled. The development representatives on the executive are Michael McCarron and Kevin McGeoghegan and the field committee reps are Sean McLaughlin Owen and Vincent McColgan as well as John McLaughlin JM and Susan Byrne from the clubhouse management. Susanna Lafferty (Rustard) has stepped down from the role of culture officer and Mandy McLaughlin will take over.
The club would like to thank Susanna for her work in the organising of Scor and anyone who helped organise the teams in the competition last weekend. Maria Mclaughlin F is the ladies rep on the committee and Shaun Mclaughlin F will help coordinate the summer camps. Kate Kelly who has led a team of volunteers in the health and well-being committee for the last number of years has taken a step back and this role needs to be filled. Again the club would like to thank Kate for the work she has done in this area and are looking for anyone interested in leading this important role in the club.
The club are delighted to announce the appointment of the senior and reserve team management for the incoming season will be the joint team of Robert Farren and Shane McCarron.
