Annual General Meeting
The AGM of Swinford Club was held on Sunday 18th in Gateway Hotel. Message of sympathy was given to all club members who lost a loved one during the year.
There was a decent turnout to look back at the year. Reports were given by the club secretary Katie Kelly and club treasurer Deirdre Dunleavy. There was a defict in the club accounts due to the high cost of the works done on pitch renovation at the vocational school. The weekly 50/50 draw is the backbone of the clubs finances and other avenues of fundraising are needed.
Shane Campbell gave the Chairmans address. Thanks was given to all who help out in the club from the club officers to all the coaches from Under 6 to senior level. There are great numbers at underage levels upto Under 16 and the Cul Camp was very well attended. The commitment of the coaches and players throughout the club has been excellent. Thanks were given to our Intermediate managment of Tom Byrne, Billy McNicholas, John Dunne and Aisling Mulholland. We were the only team in the county to go through the league season with 100% record. Thanks was given to Peter Geraghty for his work on the 50/50 draw every week. Thanks also to Jimmy McDonagh, Paul McDonnell for all their work on the pitch. Thanks also to al our sponsors Duffy tyres and Eoghan O’Connell and all who support the club during the year.
