Management AGM

46 members attended the Management club AGM last Sunday and were welcomed by President Anne McCarthy who thanked the outgoing Captains Paddy McKeown and Geraldine Fitzpatrick for being great ambassadors for the club. Anne then thanked the volunteers, the lotto crew, the Classic team, Mary Logue and especially Hugh John and Finbar, our incredible greenkeepers who do a stalwart job. Anne also thanked anyone who had made a difference to Clones Golf Club in 2016. Treasurer Donal O’Reilly made his report and opened the floor to questions and it was clear from the figures that we need to step up the fundraising and also membership numbers. There are moves afoot to concentrate on these aspects of the club immediately and to schedule a progress meeting for everyone to attend in early 2017. Donal thanked Kathleen Leonard for her work in assisting him. P J McCague, Secretary then reiterated the year and gave a breakdown of member figures he too thanked everyone who had made a difference to the club and especially Paddy McKeown for his support in the demanding role of club Secretary. The Motions put forward were discussed and adopted save the final Motion which was overturned. The election of officers followed and President Anne McCarthy continues into her second year, Secretary P J McCague, Treasurer Gerard Kelly and Tom Cassidy, Captain Joe Smith, Lady Captain Teresa Hanawin, vice-captain Pat McCabe along with Kathleen Leonard, Gerry Treanor, Paddy McKeown, Maureen Lynch, Hugo Maguire, Martin Taylor and Gerry Brady. It was pointed out that another lady member was required and this will be addressed later to co-opt someone. The meeting was brought to close and season’s greetings offered to all members and their families.
