Rúnaí, Colm McNeill, presented his report for the year highlighting the various activities in the club and the areas which need to be focussed in for 2013.
The provision of handball courts at the club and the continued development of the ground are issues which will hopefully be addressed in the coming year.
Although the Club holds the title of being the “second county ground” we are disappointed with the County Board’s interest in us when it comes to allocating the bigger club games. In 2011, we put a lot of work into the provision of Health and Safety requirements obligatory under legislation, and this also incurred considerable outlay financially from the Club’s funds. This issue will need to be addressed in the very near future one way or the other as the current situation is untenable.
Finance was also addressed and the sterling efforts of members fundraising were noted. It is in every ones’ interests to do all they can to help the club in the current trying economic times.
