Martin introduced President Anne McCarthy who proceeded to thank all the key members that had made such a huge difference in running the club over the previous year. The Treasurer Tom Cassidy then presented his report which was a huge improvement on last year’s figures due in no small part to Sean Kelleher’s meticulous diligence in managing the bar finances. The fund raising events also made a significant difference the Lotto, the Fayre, the Classic, the race night and the quiz night. Huge thanks to the people who organised same.  Secretary Martin Taylor then reflected the past year’s events especially the sad passing of 3 former Club Captains Paddy O’Flaherty, Barney Trant and Derek McLoughlin.
