Drumconrath GAA held their well attended AGM on Thursday the 28th of November and there was no change at the top table where officers were re-elected unopposed. Chairman Paul Carey thanked everyone for their continued support in 2018.
Although it was a disappointing year on the playing field there was a great sense of belief and positivity looking ahead to 2019 with no retirements forecast and some new players coming through.
Development on the multi-purpose fitness Hall has commenced in mid-November when we had a blessing and turning of sod by Fr Connaughton and Co Board chairman Peter O'Halloran. With the new build underway and all other listed development plans hoped to be completed in 2019 it is sure to be a busy and exciting time for the club and community.
We had the election of officers with Leighton Irwin now taking up the role of membership officer and Aine O'Neill as Assistant PRO. Attracta Ward became Drumconrath's first lady Honoraury President when she was elected for her endless contribution to the club throughout the years.
For anyone who was unable to attend our AGM I have attached below a copy of a presentation that was shown at our AGM highlighting some of the items that were up for discussion. This will also be available to view on our website shortly.

Look forward to seeing you all joining us for our third year of running the Bawn Rd 5k. We last organised this event in 2015 and it proved a much success and was thoroughly enjoyed by all who took part be it the keen runner or families out for an active start to their Sunday. This year all proceeds will go towards Ardee Hospice.
The club were delighted to join up with Michael Tighe Eng Ltd. in sponsoring a new set of jerseys for Drumconrath National School. Wear them with pride & honour. Wishing the school every success in their remaining games in Cumann na mBunscol.
