After hearing very detailed reports from our treasurer Johnny Maher(also outgoing) and secretary Gerry Treacy the election of officers began.

Mark Stapleton was elected Chairman; Henry Groome elected Treasurer and Martin Ryan as PRO. Great tributes were paid to the outgoing officers especially Johnny and Noelie Maher who were stepping down after many many years service. Both have been involved at many different levels in the club and their unrelenting service to the club and community won’t be forgotten. It was also announced the Jimmy Finn had been appointed as President of the club. Very few parishes are as lucky to have the calibre of men of Jimmy in their club and we are delighted to have him in the role of President.

The election of team managers was then attended to and the following were elected: Senior-Michael Ferncombe, Junior A-Michael Tierney, Under 21-Tom Stakelum, Minor-Brendan Kenny.
