Ranelagh Gaels Annual General Meeting

img_6538-1

Ranelagh Gaels’ Annual General Meeting took place on Thursday, December 1 in Ranelagh Multi-Denominational School.

There was a great turn-out and there were some excellent discussions on the year past and the future direction of the club.

Ranelagh Gaels would like that thank everyone who came along and contributed on the night and we would also like to thank RMDS for the generous use of their facilities.

The club would also like to put on record our appreciation for all of the hard work and efforts of the outgoing members of the committee.

Jean Larkin stepped down after 12 months of unstinting work in the role of Secretary and she will be missed. Eimear Bradbury, Maria Neill, Dave Berney, Denis Doolan and Conor Fingleton also left the committee after years of great work – without them the club wouldn’t be in the great shape it currently is.

Not all of these people have been replaced and there are a number of roles still vacant on the committee, which we will fill in the coming weeks. If you are interested in getting involved – drop us a line to ranelaghgaels@gmail.com.
