BALLYSTEEN GAA CLUB NOTES
Baile Stiabhna CLG AGM
The Club held our Annual General Meeting last Tuesday, December 15th 2020. There was a strong turn out this year despite it being an online event.
Two officers, John Anglim (Treasurer) & Maurice Hayes (PRO), decided to step down from their respective positions. Chairman Alan Kehoe & Secretary John Neville paid tribute on behalf of the Club to both men for their service while they held their positions. Mary Ranahan (Treasurer) & Jack Neville (PRO) were elected unopposed to the vacant positions. They were wished luck in their new roles by Alan & John.
Our Senior Management Team from 2020 lead by Seamus O’Donnell was reappointed for another term. Alan Kehoe is to take charge of the Junior B Team for 2021. Maurice Somers & Patrick Ranahan return as managers of the U21/U20 team while Mark Ranahan & Danny Neville will stay in charge of the Minors. All managements were wished well in the season ahead by Alan & John.
The Club had a relatively successful year on the pitch advancing to the knockout stages of the Senior, West Junior B & County Minor A Football Championship. Due to the pandemic, the U21 Championship has yet to have been played. All players, management teams & sponsors were thanked for their service through the year by Alan.
Alan, also thanked everyone who contributed to our fundraising efforts throughout 2020, including those who supported the CLUB Limerick Draw & the Cheltenham Tipping Competition. He noted that the Club Limerick Draw had seen a number of winners throughout the year.
With that, Alan wished everyone a safe & healthy Christmas and looked forward to 2021 with hope and expectation that better days lie ahead.

Service to the Elderly
Ballysteen GAA along with Askeaton GAA & Askeaton/Ballysteen/Kilcornan Bord na nÓg GAA wish to offer our services to the eldery and the most vulnerable in our community during this current time and throughout the weeks ahead.
All three clubs are coming together to give back to our community that has supported us throughout good times and bad. We will be offering to help anyone who requires shopping, prescriptions, fuel etc to be collected on their behalf and delivered to their doorstep.
We will support local businesses to help keep our local community going. Listed below are our coordinators numbers. You can ring or text these numbers and we will organise assistance thereafter. Best hygiene practices will be used by our volunteers during the delivery of this service.
Thanks to everyone who is volunteering as part of this. Every little helps in the sustainment and sense of community amongst ourselves. Please remember to share this information to people who are not on Social Media so that they know this service is available.
