Ladies Football
The AGM of Annaghdown Ladies Gaelic Football took place recently. The chairperson began by thanking everyone involved in the club in 2007 – their hard work and time was much appreciated! It was a very successful year with pride of place shared by two teams. The minors won the county championship, under the guidance of Mickey Burke, Martina Coen and Margaret Creaven and the U10’s, under the guidance of Collette Walsh, Aoife Coen and Lisa Flaherty, won the North Board and were narrowly defeated by Claregalway in the county final.
Our Intermediates, mentored by Brendan Melia, Gerry Scully and Martina Coen, got to the League Final where they were defeated by Tuam-Cartoon. Our U16’s were defeated in the League Final by Glenamaddy. The U14’s were defeated in a replay of the county championship semi-final – well done to Tom Murphy. Our U12’s progressed well last year, thanks to the work put in by Michael Higgins, Brian Tuohy, Tom Browne, Geraldine McCarthy, Cindy Crowe and Bridget Flaherty.

The following people were elected as managers for the forthcoming year: Senior, Martina Coen; Minor, Mickey Burke; U16, Mickey Burke; U14, Marian Murray; U12, Brian Tuohy. This year we say goodbye to Brendan Melia and Gerry Scully after many years’ service and dedication to the club – they will be sadly missed. They guided our ladies to county championship victory in 2006 and progressed to the Connacht Final the same year and last year they were defeated in the League Final.
The following officers were elected for the 2008 season: Chairperson, Collette Walsh; Secretary, Mary Killilea; Treasurer, Ita Scully; PRO, Patricia Fahy; Register, Lorraine Scully; Child Officer, Fiona Scully; County Board Delegate, Mary Killilea and Ita Scully. Again we say goodbye to Caroline Scully who held the position as registrar last year.
The turnout at this year’s AGM was disappointing and it is hoped that some parents and anyone else interested will help out in either training or administration work during the year. The club is planning to have their prize-giving ceremony on Thursday, March 6 in the clubhouse in Cregg.
The Annaghdown Ladies Club would like to sympathise with the Wynne family on the bereavement of Ailish’s sister, Aine Slattery.
