The AGM of Coiste na nOg took place on the 27th January . Thanks to outgoing committee members Sinead O’Hara, Jacqui Mulholland, and John Foley for all their hard work over the past number of years, who have stepped down from their positions. This year’s committee is Maria O’Rourke Chairperson, Mary Sharry Secretary, Annamarie Kirwan PRO, John Byrne Child Protection Officer, and John Kirwan County Representative. All mentors were thanked for their great work with our teams, and also parents for bringing the children to and from matches. The Adult Committee were also thanked for their help throughout the year. We wish the present committee members and teams all the best for the coming year.
Registration night for Coiste na nOg will take place in mid-February.
