The club recently held a successful AGM and as 2020 begins, there are some changes in key positions. Dennis Diggins stepped down from Secretary and Irene Sheridan was elected to this office with Dennis elected as Assistant Secretary and Kenny Ryan as Registrar.
With the role of PRO now vacant, Jamie Murphy was voted in unopposed. The Youth sub-committee has been re shaped slightly with Laurence Wrenn assuming the role of Youth Registrar.
Many thanks to Tim Slattery who has handed over the reins after a number of years involved with organising the membership and it is great that he will remain a coach within the U13 age group for the new season.
Also stepping away from the Youth section is Irene Sheridan who has been involved with this committee for over 12 years. She takes up the challenge of Club Secretary with the men’s section and looks forward to successfully moving the club forward.
