Lisgoold AGM 2011

Lisgoold AGM 2011 ran off as a very eventful encounter with a nice large attendance to be had. Our chairman (who was elected for the coming year) Eoin O’Riordan announced to the crowd of the achievements of the past year. He spoke very positively, especially with the hard work done by the finance committee and also by the success of our Junior and Under 21 teams. His message for 2012 was that, while we have come up short in our successes from previous year, we still have a lot achieved with the potential for more. A special mention was given to our ‘Juvenile Academy’ (the under 6, 8 and 10 teams) by claiming “that these guys are the future, lets a build a platform for them now so bigger strides can be made”. No doubt, with this in mind Lisgoold GAA is in for a great 2012. From this meeting the following officers were elected for the coming year:

President: Dan Joe McCarthy 
Chairman: Eoin O’Riordan
Secretary: Michael Berine
Treasurer: Patrick O’Mahony

With the Christmas season almost over, its time to turn to the year ahead. 2011 will be seen by many as a sign of progress, lets hope our juniors and Under 21’s can make that extra step to achieve more for the year ahead. On that note, everyone in C.LG. Liosgcúl we would like to wish its members and everyone connected to the club a happy and peaceful new year!!!

Long Puck 2011

It was all roads to Leamlara Cross last St.Stephen’s morning to take part in the annual Poc Fada, which is in aid of Lisgoold Juvenile club. Not even the damp, drizzly weather could put off a strong showing of 40 teams who came over to shake off the excess of turkey and pudding from the previous day and also to discuss who could possibly replace the legendary newsreader Anne Doyle from RTE!!! It was a superbly contested long puck, with some spectacular and not-so spectacular shots played on the very challenging route from Leamlara Cross to the GAA pitch. With one of them in particular, a fantastic long shot hit by young Siobhán Ahern, a possible new talented hurler emerging within the parish!!! We also had a novelty result this year with the winners coming from the one family!! The winning team consisted of Jerry, John & Kieran Cashman producing a fantastic score of 45 shots. Also this year saw the introduction of the ladies competition, which was very keenly contested. The winning team (Strangely again from the same family!!!) with a very respective score of 68 Shots was Elizabeth, Maria and Frances Connery. Congratulations to both teams on winning their respective competitions and of course to everyone who turned up on the day to raise vital funds for the vibrant juvenile club. Prizes will be presented to the winning teams at the victory social which is on the 4th of February.
