MUNGRET ST. PAUL’S GAA CLUB
Mungret St Pauls held its AGM on Sunday 30th January 2022. It was great to see an exceptional crowd at the clubhouse which included a great mix of players, parents and long standing members.
Maurice began with a quick run down with the clubs events during 2021. It was reminded that all coaches need to make sure they are garda vetted before they return to training.
Brian O’Halloran then apologized to the attendees explaining that unfortunately the finances were not available due to many unexpected events but they are being sought. Brendan Ryan as the temporary treasurer gave a run down on what way the club finances are standing at present.
The chairpersons address began with a warm welcome followed by a moment of silence to honor those who are no longer with us. Brian acknowledged that it was great to see so many players there. There was an expression of thanks to all the volunteers who have been in anyway involved in keeping the club running, it gives great pride to see the club looking great with all the work the many volunteers have done.
The development of the club will be a big task ahead for us but with the committee that has been put in place, the development will be in safe hands.
It then became time to elect the new management. We welcome a stalwart of the club back to the chairpersons seat as Donal Fitzgibbon was elected. A new treasurer was welcomed on board as player Stephen Dilworth took over the role. Maurice Walsh remains in the secretaries seat. There was a call out for assistance for the main roles in the club, it was expressed that there is a need to fill in when the need arises. If you feel you will be able to assist we would appreciate you putting your name forward.
The County board delegate remains as Ramie Dowling. We would like to thank all the years Donie Browne committed to the club as purchasing officer as he steps away from the role. It was suggested that the purchases be done through the club shop from now on.
President, Pa O’Brien and Vice President, John Moriarity were both confirmed. Wanda Dwane remains as PRO as does Maeve Duff as club registrar while looking to attain an assistant due to the growing numbers in the club. If you feel you can help Maeve we would appreciate you making contact with the secretary expressing your interest.
There were a few motions and requests discussed before the incoming chairperson, Donal Fitzgibbon spoke a few words to close the meeting.
We would like to Thank everyone for attending and to all our outgoing representatives we Thank you for all your hard work. For our management committee for 2022 we wish them all the best for the year ahead.
