AGM: The Annual General Meeting of Lorrha GAA Club took place on Saturday night in front of what was again, a disappointing crowd, particularly considering the successful year gone by with the very low turnout of players once again a disappointment.
However, in the process of achieving that success, it proved to be a severe financial strain on the club and there will have to be some belt tightening in the weeks and months ahead while there was a call for everyone to put in a concerted effort to raise funds for the club through the weekly lotto and our up-coming Christmas Draw.
Expressions of thanks were made to outgoing Treasurer Tina Young who stood down from the post after three years and delivered another excellent report. However, no one came forward to replace her and the roles of Treasurer and Registrar will have to be filled at the Adjourned Annual General Meeting. Jim Williams was ratified as Senior and U/21 manager for 2008 while Ken Hogan remains in charge of the minors. A Junior manager has yet to be confirmed.
