Joint Club (Management) AGM

The Joint Club (Management) AGM was well attended on Sunday evening last and Martin Taylor opened the meeting as Club Secretary. Martin introduced President Father Jerry White 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 made satisfactory reading due in no small part to Sean Kelleher’s meticulous diligence in managing the bar finances and the finance team’s restructuring of the loan. The fund raising events also made a significant difference the Lotto and the Classic, the race night and the steak night. Huge thanks to the people who organised same.  Secretary Martin Taylor then reflected the past year’s events especially the sad passing of long time member Paddy Quigley, and mentioned those that had lost loved ones connected to the club. The 3 Motions were passed with the new position of Liaison Officer being taken up by Vice-Captain Padraig Connolly. The election of officers then ensued. Martin Taylor announced that he was not standing the forthcoming year as Secretary and nominations were sought. Brian Morgan was nominated and seconded and elected to warm applause. Brian paid tribute to Martin Taylor not only for his tenure over the last 18 months but for all his time serving the club over many years. Tom Cassidy also said he was standing down as Treasurer but as there were no nominations he would stay in situ until a replacement could be found until April 2019 only. He offered to assist the new incumbent in any way he could.
