Club Notes: 08-12-2022
Kilmacabea AGM for 2022 took place last Saturday evening in the GAA Pavilion. Chairperson Dan Hourihane welcomed everyone to the meeting and mentioned that it was great to see so many new faces and hoped that they would continue attending regularly. Secretary Narelle Jennings gave her usual detail review of the year’s activities and gave special mention to the U12 West Cork Winning girls team and to the U13 boy who won the league title. Jennnifer Sweetnam outlined the clubs financial position and thanked all those that sold club draw tickets throughout the year, those involved in the joint Lotto committee and all our club sponsors for their generosity as always. Michael Tobin and Donie O Donovan gave their reports on underage and Ladies club activities respectively. Donie also thanked all those that helped to get the Ladies club up and running and is hoping for an equally successful 2023. The club will again enter teams at Junior A and Junior C level with future discussion to be held over u21 grading.
