Pat’s Captaincy To Be Honoured

Two end of season events are of varied purpose. The first will take place this Friday night as we pay due tribute to the captaincy of Pat Murray. The second is set for Wednesday, 12th December with the 11th Annual General Meeting of the men’s club.

Pat has worked with quiet efficiency for the club in a role that takes constant attention during the year. In particular, he has been very much a P.R.O. who has met and welcomed visitors and societies on a regular basis, making them appreciate course, facilities and friendly atmosphere.

In this he has teamed with ex-captain and Men’s Secretary Pat Davy to fine effect, ensuring that we are a competitive location in these demanding times. So we are very happy to demonstrate our gratitude on Friday night at an event organised by Vice-Captain Toss Hayes and the Social Committee.

A punch reception leads off from 7.30 p.m. with the dinner timed for 8.30 p.m. A worthy turn out is very much desired as we continue the popular return to our premises for this enjoyable occasion.

The A.G.M. is set for 8.30 p.m. on Wednesday. Club structure since the major change came into effect confines the session to golf matters as they relate to the male fraternity - any resolution tabled is in that context. Toss Hayes will succeed to the captaincy.

Larry Moloney’s five years as Treasurer will necessitate a new holder of the purse strings while Pat Davy does not intend to continue as Secretary. Jimmy Ryan similarly is not seeking re-election to the committee. Eligible to continue will be Jimmy O’Neill, Vincent Byrne, Bob Coghlan, Ray Shannon and Stevie Smee.

Thus there are vacancies for Secretary, Treasurer and three committee places, one of these to be filled by in-coming Vice-Captain Pat Fallon, leaving two to be filled. The agenda, as usual, ends with an “A.O.B.” opportunity for issues to be raised on the night.
