AGM: Our AGM was held on the 24th November in the clubhouse and was well attended. Chairman Gerry Butler welcomed all and thanked them for attending. Enda Murray read the secretary's report on behalf of the excused Kieran Yourell. Chris McCarthy presented a detailed Finance Report which for once generated little or no debate. In his Chairman's address, Gerry thanked all for their hard work during the year and looked forward to a positive 2018, both on the field and off it, development wise. A full list of the 2018 officers will soon be available on the website and will be published in the notes. Votes of sympathy were expressed to all who suffered bereavements during the year.
