CLUB AGM: A sizeable membership at our Senior Club AGM, held on Sunday last (15th Jan), saw most of our current ‘Top Table’ continue for the coming season. A brilliant Report by Club Secretary, Siobhán Power, was circulated to members as they arrived. Club Chairman, Shane Lynch’s comprehensive address outlined the main events of 2022 and gave a detailed perspective on what’s lined up for the coming season.

Orlaith Griffin takes over as Children’s Officer while Carmel O’Neill moves to the Irish Language and Culture position.

And then towards the end of the Meeting there was widespread welcome for Aidan O’Connor who was formally elected Club President in succession to the late Brendan Dowling.

Aidan was, and still is, synonymous with the C Team which he continues to manage and he was also Club Chairman for a five year period (2011-2015) in between Ger Reidy and Liam Lynch. .

At Juvenile level there were some changes too with Ritchie Conway elected Chairman and Tim McMahon, who had held that position for the past 15 years, moving to the position of Club Coaching Officer.

WELL DONE: to Rathmore and Fossa on their respective Intermediate and Junior All Ireland wins last Sunday. It’s the fifth year now, since the competitions were revamped in 2004, that Kerry Clubs have won both Finals in the same year. St. Michaels Foilmore and Skellig Rangers were the first to do it in 2009.Then Ardfert and Brosna did it in 2015. The following year St. Marys and Templenoe did it and in 2019 Kilcummin and Beaufort were the winners.
