Club AGM
The Aodh Ruadh AGM took place on Sunday in Aras Aoidh Ruaidh. There a good crowed present as we looked back on a successful 2019 and made plans for the coming season. Detailed reports were submitted by all sub-committees and these were followed by an address from club chairman William Doogan, reflecting on his first year in office, thanking all those who had made it such an enjoyable experience. That was followed in turn by an address from our club President, Owen Roe O'Neill. He congratulated all sections of the club for their dedication in promoting our national games and continuing the proud tradition Aodh Ruadh has had for many decades. He reflected that he had been involved with the club since the 1950s as a player, administrator, coach and manager and seen lean times as well as successful ones, but he highlighted that the activity was, successful or otherwise, was the most important part of any club and thankfully Aodh Ruadh continues to be a very active club on and off the field. Owen spoke about some of the high points of 2019 before concluding his address by remembering club members and families connected with the club who lost loved ones during the year and remembering all the great Gaels who played their part in making the club what it is today who are no longer with us.
Motions were then considered. Motion one, to bring under 21 football football under the Bord na nÓg structure failed to pass. Motion two, that all Aras bookings come through the Club Secretary was passed. Motion three, that the Club Treasurer is responsible for pricing and sourcing transport for club activities was ruled out as proposer was not present. Motion four, that we formally request the LGFA to bring membership affiliation fees and insurance costs in line with CLG, and that if there is no movement by 1 January 2022 that we charge Ladies GAA for the use of club facilities was ruled out as proposer was not present. Motion five, that Aodh Ruadh become a smoke free club was passed.
The AGM then proceeded to the election of officers with the following posts being filled. Patrons: Father Ó Fearrai and Canon McGroarty; President: Owen Roe O'Neill; Vice Presidents: Peter Conlon, PJ Buggy, John Magee, Michael McLoone, Tom Gallagher, John Murphy and Alan Kane; Chairman: William Doogan; Vice-Chairman: Diarmaid Keon; Secretary: Lisa McTernan; Assistant Secretary: Brian Gillespie; Treasurer: Sabrina Brosnan; Assistant Treasurer: Sarah Daly; PRO: John Hughes; Oifigeach na Gaeilge: Alan Sweeny and Eamonn Martin Maguire; Substitute County Board Delegates: Diarmaid Keon; Health and Well-being Officer: Philip McLoone; Child Protection Officer: Paul Touhy. The only post left unfilled was that of Director of Coaching. It was hoped to have this position filled for the first meeting of the new committee in January.
Also voted onto the committee on the evening were those present at the AGM, with allowance made for further members to be appointed at the January executive meeting.
Congratulations and best wishes to all those who have taken up a post for 2020. The club extends its gratitude to those outgoing officers who have stepped down from posts after working hard for the club over the past season and beyond.

National and Local Draw
Tickets are currently being distributed for the annual National Club Draw. This is effectively three draws in one with fantastic prizes in all three draws for just €10 a ticket. See aodhruadh.org for full details of the prizes available. Proceeds from this draw are ring fenced to build a new playing surface on Father Tierney Park in 2020. This year marks the 65th anniversary of the opening of the ground. Our Park / Development Committee has already secured €100,000 in grant aid towards the project costs and the draw is a critical part of providing matching funding. Initially, we need as many people as possible taking one or two books of five tickets to sell. Any club member can provide tickets or contact anyone of the Draw Committee of Tom Daly, William Doogan, Conal Gallagher, Gerard Ferguson, Paul Gillespie, David McLoone, Sarah Daly, Philip McLoone and Michael Daly. For those not living locally who wish to support the Father Tierney Park project, tickets can be purchased on the Aodh Ruadh page on Klubfunder.com.
