St. Anne's AGM
St. Anne's Camogie Club held their AGM on Tuesday 5th December 2017.
Chairperson Una Caraher thanked the outgoing committee, coaches and mentors for all the time, effort and commitment that they gave to St. Anne's throughout the season. As with all clubs, we rely on volunteers to keep the club running effectively and St. Anne's have been blessed in this area throughout our 53 years in existence and indeed we are very fortunate to have some very committed, talented and skilful administrators, coaches and mentors keeping Camogie alive in Togher.
2017 got off to a start when the St Anne's U 13s went into action in the 2017 Gormanston Indoor Competition which ran for 6-weeks across January and February 2017. The St Anne's team produced some great performances and gained great experience through participation in the tournament which will surely stand to them in the future.
It was also a busy start to the year for the club who ran a 5-week Indoor Camogie Tournament in Drogheda Leisure Park from Saturday 25th February to Saturday 25th March. St Anne's was represented by the rising stars in the U 8s, U 11s and U15s all of whom represented the club very well against teams from across County Louth and adjoining counties. The U 15s were congratulated on their third place finish in this hard fought, fast moving and exciting competition.
Throughout the year our Juvenile players participated in blitzes and competitions all over the county and beyond and are honing their skills well. This is clearly evident from the number of players who have been playing at inter county level. Particular congratulations was extended to St Anne's players whose skills and efforts have been noted at inter county level.
There was some disappointment too when the for the first time in its history the club went unrepresented at senior level. Those attending the meeting recognised the importance of senior level representation.
St. Anne's would like to thank the following:
Players at all levels.
Parents and family members who are always on hand to help when asked.
Naomh Fionnbarra GFC for the use of their pitch and facilities.
IFM, Mullins Cross, Dunleer for their kind sponsorship towards our 5-Week Indoor Tournament
Togher Info, LMFM, Hoganstand, Drogheda Independent and Dundalk Democrat and the Argus for their coverage of our matches and events.
To all who continue to support St. Anne's fund raising efforts including our very successful bake sale and through weekly lotto subscriptions.
Election of Officers for 2018
Delegates to County Board:

The club is set to have another busy year in 2018 and planning has already begun for the 2018 indoor season. Once again St Anne's hopes to be represented by a Juvenile team at the Gormanston indoor tournament and once again we intend to run an indoor tournament for U8s and up at Drogheda Leisure Park.
With a view to developing and training a senior panel for the 2018 season, a meeting is planned for all senior level, U 17, U 16 and U 15 players. This meeting will take place in the Club rooms in Naomh Finbarra on Tuesday19th December 2017.
