A Chairde,

As things wind down for the Christmas break. There is still plenty of news to report.

We held our AGM last Sunday. We would like to welcome Warren Healy on to the Club's Executive Committee. Warren has taken over fro Michelle Breen as Club Registrar. We would like to thank Michelle for all the hard work she put in this year and we are very grateful she has stayed on as an assistant this year to help Warren get up and running.

Míle buíochas to John Daly who has served as Vice Chairperson for the past 2 years. John did an excellent job and was a huge support to the club officers tyhroughout that time. John will remain on the Committee, taking up the previous vacant role of Árus Director and we look forward to him lending his expertise to the Árus role.

That leaves the role of Vice Chairperson vacant and we would welcome anyone who might have an interest in becoming a club chairperson in the future to express an interest. the best way to learn what's involved and decide whether a role like that would suit you, is to assist in the vice role so if you have any 

Thanks also to Sean Cullen who has stepped down as Ladies Football Director after a njumber of years at the helm. Sean has overseen Ladies Football grow and improve at an incredible rate and deserves huge credit for all the long hours put in over the poast few years.

That leaves the roles of Ladies Football and Juvenile Hurling Directors vacant. We would welcome anyone who has an interest to contact us in the club please.

 A reminder the SKGAA Christmasd party takes place in Sheridancs tomorrow evening from 8.30pm onward. Hope to see you all there.
