DRUMCONRATH GAA AGM 2017
Drumconrath GAA held their well attended AGM on Thursday 18th in the Parish Centre. History was made at our AGM as the Meath County Board Chairman was in attendance, our own clubman Peter O'Halloran. Our club Chairman Paul Carey welcomed and congratulated Peter on his recent achievement of becoming the clubs first ever Co Board Chairman. Peter addressed the floor and thanked the club for all their support over the years. He acknowledged that it all starts at club level and that this has helped bring him to the position he holds today.
The 2017 football teams management of Anthony Monaghan, Cathal Byrne and Mickel Reilly were thanked for their great efforts in managing the team to a JF Quarter Final and a Tailteann Cup Final.
Off the field there was also great success for the club as their main fundraiser 'Lip Sync Battles' exceeded all expectations and secured great financial reward for our proposed new development. Chairman thanked all involved for their hard work including performers, volunteers, sponsors, committee and everyone who supported it. It was a great night for club and community.
Club President Fr. Connaughton spoke about how the club has got behind and helped with many community activities. He also made particular reference to our recently developed walking track and how it is a fantastic amenity for young and old of our parish and surrounding areas. He wished the club continued success for the year ahead both on and off the pitch.
