The club’s AGM was held early last week in the pavilion with a reasonable attendance present to hear and discuss how matters went in 2018.
In the reports from club chairman and secretary, Sean Murphy and Conor Meehan, there was, in the main, good news on a number of different aspects of club life.
On the playing front there was the disappointment at adult level with the senior side dropping down to league two but there was the consolation of having retained senior championship status.
On the underage front and in ladies football there was much more encouraging development with a number of teams achieving success and in some grades there is very distinct promise for the coming season.
The club was also extremely active on a wide range of other fronts, social occasions a leading factor here and of course there is the hugely important new playing pitch which is now on the calendar for an official opening towards the end of next summer.
Both chairman and secretary warmly thanked all those who had in any way contributed to the club over the past twelve months but also stressed that there was an ongoing need for more members to offer their services in some administrative capacity.
On the financial front , treasurer Michael Corry, said that overall the club was in a reasonable enough state of health but needless to say there was considerable expenditure still ahead as the ground development gathers pace and the day to day costs of running the club continues to accelerate.
There was a lengthy discussion on particular fund raisers, the importance of the weekly Games Sessions and Lotto being underlined while the current draw was the subject of much discussion. Returns so far have been basically satisfactory but a number of speakers emphasised the need for a much greater tally of sellers to make themselves available over the early months of the New Year in order to maximise the financial success of the venture.
There will be a special celebratory youth evening in January to acknowledge the successes of the underage teams, no firm date has as yet been decided on.
The annual townland 7’s competition which has proved to be one of the highlights of the year will again be held on St Stephen’s Day and this year the venue will be the club pitch, opening game is at 10-30 am.
