The Cashel King Cormacs GAA Club held their Annual General Meeting on Saturday night last in Leahy Park. On the back of a successful season on the field of play the meeting went off well.
Club Patron Fr. Bernie Moloney opened proceedings and outlined the important role of the “Committee” within the club, ensuring the club remained strong and vibrant while all the time the enjoyment factor was not lost on committee members while carrying out their roles. A good turnout of members were taken through the years accounts by treasurer Tommy Grogan who gave an accurate and detailed account of all club transactions throughout a busy 2012.
The club Lotto in association with the Camogie and Handball clubs was praised a various stages and Mattie Finnerty also gave a detailed run down on the years Lotto account, outlining that more emphasis needs to be made on engaging more sellers into the Club Lotto while acknowledging the massive contribution from a certain number of people.
Outgoing club secretary Aidan Hynes gave a very detailed report on all activity in the club in 2012. He paid tribute to the fantastic achievements of our inter-county stars Dylan Fitzell, Simon Delaney and Gearoid Slattery in their success. Aidan thanked his family and the members for their support and friendship through his term and looked forward to a return in some capacity sometime in the future.
Club Chairman Brendan Bonnar addressed the meeting and urged all members to become more active within the club in particular with juveniles on Saturday mornings, the bedrock of the club is the future and if we can continue to nurture and bring the Juveniles through as we are now doing then the Club will be a stronger one. He thanked all the selectors for their efforts in 2012 especially those not seeking re-election and also to the committee member for their time and dedication in 2012. Brendan echoed the sentiments of previous speakers in thanking outgoing secretary Aidan Hynes for his 5 and half years service and for a job well done. The election of officers then took place, with just a handful of positions left to be filled by the incoming committee hopefully the month of January will see all positions occupied. A special mention was given to outgoing President Paddy O’Sullivan on his recent Sean Gael award an award well deserved, and this brought the meeting to a close.
The Cashel King Cormacs Club would like to extend its sincerest sympathies to the Murphy Family and to Michael McDonnell on the recent bereavement of Mandy. “Ar Dheis De go raibh a hanam dilis”.
