Coolaney/Mullinabreena Club AGM 2021

The Club held its first on-line AGM via Zoom platform on Sunday last Jan. 10th. The meeting was very well attended. In brief, the reports of the evening detailed a very positive look back on a very difficult 2020 where the club managed to pull through, despite some very challenging hurdles. The year was dominated, of course, by the pandemic and it’s a credit to all involved in the Club that we still managed to provide a crucial service to our community given the testing circumstances.

Chairperson, Ollie Lee commended all involved in the Club during the year from sponsors to players, coaches, officers, parents and supporters. He remarked on the considerable achievement in getting through 2020. Great effort was again given to providing hours of coaching to our large membership of players, youth and adult. We also managed to deliver significant improvements to our facility at Nace O’Dowd Park through an extensive car park extension and associated works. He expressed a huge pride in being involved in such a great club with great volunteers and asked for renewed commitment again for what promises to be a challenging 2021.

Sympathy was expressed to all the recently bereaved families of the Club with special mention for former Chairperson, the late Fr. Paddy Kilcoyne. Fr. Paddy was a loyal and unconditional supporter of the Club ever since his tenure and supported us through all our events and fundraisers. Ar dheis Dé go raibh said go leir.

Best wishes and health for 2021 were extended to everybody on behalf of the Executive of the Club. An e-copy of the AGM booklet is available by contacting Club Chairperson Ollie Lee (ollielee@hotmail.com).
