Bride Rovers GAA Club notes & news round-up for the week.

November 8, 2018

Club Meeting

The Club has had two meetings since the New Year and remaining business left over from the AGM were dealt with, and preparations are underway for the season. Various sub committees were formed and the finalisation of team managements for the year ahead. Pat Barry will continue as manager of the Senior Hurling team and he will appoint his own selection committee. The U21 Football will be managed by Daniel Lane with selectors Brendan Walsh and Brennie O Driscoll.

The Junior Football has not been finalised as the club has requested a regrade to B for 2013 and we await a decision from the ccc of the East Cork Board.

The development plans for the new Astro turf playing surface were discussed and the Development/Finance committee will bring forward their plans to further meetings of the Executive. The Treasurer outlined the financial situation and various items of expenditure were approved for payment.

Membership fees are now due and must be paid to club treasurer before any game is played.

The Club extended its sympathy to the Johnson, Collins, Parle, Kelleher & O Keeffe families on their recent bereavements.
