New Lady Captain

The ladies Annual General Meeting held last Sunday week produced the usual comprehensive review of the tenure of the outgoing Lady Captain Geraldine Fitzpatrick by Madam Secretary Catherine Farrell followed by her Secretary’s report and the report from the Treasurer Bridie Keenan. Geraldine thanked her committee for their support and hard work and made particularly mention of the support received following her accidents. The outgoing Lady Captain thanked all the sponsors for their generous donations throughout the year. The transfer of office was made to the incoming Lady Captain Teresa Hanawin who was unable to introduce her Vice-Captain, as yet the position is vacant. The committee were duly elected and are: ex officio Geraldine Fitzpatrick, Secretary Catherine Farrell, Treasurer Bridie Keenan, Competition Secretary Ann McCarthy, Handicap Secretary Roberta Hamilton & PRO Mary Trant and the elected members are Brid Finlay, Joy Cassidy, Kathleen McCabe-Gibbons, Paula Jenkins and Rosita McCabe. There were several other topics of discussion which resulted in lively debate. It was agreed that if a lady arrives for a draw and no other lady appears, then the card may be marked by another member as long as it’s not a family member.  The meeting was brought to a close by Lady Captain Teresa and everyone wishes her well in her coming year.
