The ladies Annual General Meeting held last Sunday was unusual in the fact that the outgoing Lady Captain Teresa Hanawin wasn’t in attendance due to the sad loss of her sister-in law. The lady in waiting Brid took the chair and thanked the outgoing committee on behalf of Teresa. Madam Secretary Catherine Farrell produced her usual comprehensive report of events in the past year followed by the report from the Treasurer Bridie Keenan. The transfer of office was made to the incoming Lady Captain Brid Finlay by Geraldine Fitzpatrick. Lady Captain Brid then introduced her Vice-Captain, Collette McCahery. The committee were duly elected and are: ex officio Teresa Hanawin, Secretary Catherine Farrell, Treasurer Bridie Keenen, Competition Secretary and Handicap Secretary Roberta Hamilton and the elected members are Loretto Traynor, Eileen Kerr, Anne McCarthy, Joy Cassidy, Geraldine Fitzpatrick, Rosita McCabe and Paula Jenkins. Lady Captain Brid announced her Lady Captain’s weekend away will be 20th to 22nd of April 2018 possible in Bray and her Lady Captain’s Day will be on Saturday 28th July 2018. The meeting was brought to a close by Lady Captain Brid and everyone wishes her well in her coming year.
The new Lady Captain Brid Finlay and all of the ladies club wish Captain Pat McCabe a happy and successful year.
