Underage AGM – 20/11
Shamrocks underage held their AGM before a bigger than normal crowd in the Grace McCarthy rooms last Thursday. They heard comprehensive reports from the outgoing chairman John Twomey (Ringaskiddy) and Secretary Patrick Andrews. It was an extremely successful year, one of our best ever, particularly from the Minor and U16 combinations. Garrett Flynn in his role as Physical Trainer was also thanked. Both men thanked all the players, mentors, coaches, parents and supporters for their work during the year.
The Adult Executive were represented by Vice Chairman Kieran Lynam and Treasurer John Twomey (Shanbally). John spoke on behalf of the Adult Executive. He praised all the great work being done at underage. Paddy Andrews was thanked as Board delegate and also the sponsors. Paddy as Treasurer presented his comprehensive Treasurers report.
The Officers were then elected for 2015. All officers were returned with one change. A Secretary was still being spoken to as to their role. The outgoing Secretary Patrick Andrews was elected as the Clubs first ever Coaching Officer. Other positions filled were those of board delegates, childrens officer and childrens delegate. A list of team manager and mentors were read out. There were still a few positions to be filled but as the season doesn’t start until March next year, the club have time to get that rectified.
After any other business, the meeting concluded.
The AGM of the Adult Club will take place next Thursday December 4th at 8pm in the Grace McCarthy Rooms. All are welcome, but only fully paid-up members are entitled to vote on the night.
Presentation of Underage Medals to Shamrocks
Shamrocks underage will be presented with their Rebel Óg East medals this coming Friday night in Páirc Ui Chaoimh. This is only for our captains, vice captains and mentors from each team. With 5 competitions picked up this year at Rebel Óg East, Shamrocks are considering renting a bus for the big crowd that will be travelling up from the parish. They better have a camera big enough up there to accommodate us in the photo.
These medals will then be officially presented at the Underage Victory Medal Presentation and Social in Monkstown Golf Club on Friday January 23rd. Tickets will be €25 each and they will be available shortly. The players and mentors who were involved this year will be free on the night. It promises to be a wonderful occasion.
Before that, on Friday December 12th in the FBI Ringaskiddy, the underage will also have a more informal gathering, a Christmas night out for all the coaches, mentors and helpers from 2014. There’ll be fingerfood and the Minor County Championship DVD will be shown on the big screen. Again, a great night guaranteed.
