U15 PREMIER FOOTBALL FINAL AWAITS!

 

Congratulations to our u15 football team who booked their place in the Premier final with a 3 point win over Fethard last week! Well done to all involved.  

DEVELOPMENT DRAW

***PLEASE READ***
The club is gearing up for a one off giant fundraiser which will take place over the Autumn and Winter months and will see ticket sellers drive the length and breadth of the county to sell €20 tickets yielding a top prize of a car and many other great prizes. This is a once in a generation, large scale project which requires the support of EVERYONE in the club. We have been amazed by the amount of volunteers who have already come forward but we are still recruiting. The more sellers we have the better to share the workload. Now is the perfect opportunity to help develop for the future. Anyone interested in being part of this project (which will fund the development of the club grounds including drainage of the top pitch and provision of flood lighting to same) please contact John on 0872807679 or Danny 0861089553. Please make the effort and help make a difference.

CLUBPERSON OF THE YEAR 2018

His contribution to the development of club teams has been matched by his work off the field on various committees and in fundraising events. Noel is pictured receiving his award from Tossy Ryan.

EGM Thursday April 19th @ 8pm Clubhouse

The purpose of the Special General Meeting is to discuss and vote on the way club property is held into the future. The GAA are introducing a Corporate Trustee model with the intention to make transactions simpler and quicker and reduce personal exposure to trustees.

 

There are 3 options available

 

Option 1. Do noting and to continue to hold club property through personal trustees

 

Option 2. Introduce a partial change, in that case property is held by a combination of personal trustees and the corporate trustee

 

Option 3. Elect to have property held only through the corporate trustee.

 

The Executive Committee of the club favour option 3 as

 

– individuals are no longer trustees and therefore are not exposed should the club/unit be sued

–   currently, when individual trustees resign or die there can be delay and cost associated with transfer of responsibility

–  If a personal trustee was to get into financial difficulty, resulting in a judgement being obtained and registered on club property, theis can cause delays and complications in dealing with the property

– any dealings with club property should be streamlined without the need for multiple copies of documents and multiple signatures

 

and will move a motion at the meeting to adopt it.
