Russell Rovers GAA Club News

04 January, 2012

Russell Rovers Junior Club held its AGM on the 4th December in the clubrooms. The turnout far exceeded last year’s attendance which reflects positively on the club heading into 2012.
Chairman’s address emphasised importance of looking to the future with a sense of purpose and optimism. The Secretaries report was quite comprehensive and provided the basis for most of the ensuing discussion.
Following these addresses and the adoption of the minutes, the election of officers was held.
The election of Officers to the Executive was completed bar a no. of positions which were subsequently completed at the first meeting of new executive on 14 December.
The 2012 Committee is as follows:
President: James O’Sullivan , Chairman: Dick Fitzgerald, Vice-chairman: John Maher, Treasurer: Tim Cummins, Secretary: Brendan Kearney, Registrar: Brian Crowley, PRO: Kieran O’Brien. Committee: Eoin Ivers, James Ahern, David Walsh, Martin O’Sullivan, Seamus Kearney, Mossie Coffey Walsh, Michael Kearney, Sean Walsh, Micheal Walsh, Tom Ahern and Patsy Higgins.
It was noted that there are a no. of new faces in the committee and the inclusion of 6 members of the Junior squad with 3 accepting club officer ships acknowledged as being another positive step.

All 40 who left from Inch made it safe and sound to Ballycotton. Thanks to Egan coaches and the coastguard for all their assistance, to Helen Lewis and her team for serving the refreshments along the way, and to Mike & Brid O’Shea, The Schooner and Mossie Tattan, The Blackbird, for hosting us afterwards in Ballycotton, where the craic was mighty.
