St Farnan's Club Notes   12/12/2017


The A.G.M. of the club was held recently at which a wide ranging review of the playing season just ended took place. The out-going chairperson, who retained her post, thanked all for their contribution to the club over the course of what was a very busy year. The following officers were elected for the coming year:-  Chairperson: Lorna Harte-Gilroy; Ass. Chairperson: Jackie Donlon; Sec: Joanne McAndrew;  Ass. Sec: Mary Scott;  Treasurer/Registrar: Imelda McNulty; Ass. Treas./Reg.: Ciara Hannon; Childrens Officer: L. Harte-Gilroy; Dev. Officer: Paul O’Brien; P.R.O.: Sean Kilgannon; Cultural and Language Officer: Deborah Ní Cheallaigh; 

One very positive development to emerge from the meeting was the decision to field an adult team in the coming year. Due to lack of numbers we haven’t had an adult team for the past two years but the feeling now is that sufficient numbers of young players are progressing from the underage ranks to make the fielding of an adult team viable once again. Paul O’Brien was appointed to the role of manager of this team. Other team officials appointed were :- U-6/U-8: J.Donlon, M.Scott; U-10: N.Walsh, M.Ruane, G.Ruane; U-12; J.McAndrew, G.O’Brien, A.Scott; U-14: T.Scott; U-16: R.Lang; Minor: D.McCloat. Other names will be added to the list in due course.

The date for the Annual Underage Presentation Function which will be held in Dromore West Community Centre has had to be changed from Wednesday, Dec. 27th to Sunday, Jan 7th, due to circumstances outside our control. Further details will be available locally closer to the time.

It seems to be very much a case of love is in the air for club players at the moment with two engagements over the weekend. Former club underage player Elaine Howley and fiancé Ted Kilgannon announced their intentions to tie the knot while Fidelma Mulligan, goalkeeper on our 2012 Jnr C’ship winning side, and her fiancé Michael Hennigan made a similar announcement. Congratulations and best wishes to both couples. 

Finally, may we take this opportunity to wish all involved with the club in any way, as well as all our supporters a Happy, Healthy and Peaceful Christmas and a Prosperous New Year.
