Club Annual General Meeting.
Shamrocks C.L.G. will hold their AGM this Friday night 5th January in the Shamrock Inn, Knockanore, starting at 8.30pm sharp. All members and players are asked to attend as any decisions made at the AGM will stand for the year. Hope to see a good attendance.
Emily Byrne Fund.
After the fantastic success of the Tractor Run on the 27th December in Lismore which saw an unprecedented 500 vehicles including over 450 tractors take part, there will be a sponsored walk in Knockanore this Saturday 6th January, starting at the KGK Hall around 12.30pm. All money raised will go towards the Emily Byrne Fund, and great credit must go to Kevin Moloney, Denis Corkery, and Mike O’ Neill who, along with the considerable help of Pa Lyons, Ned and Michael O’ Rourke from Melleray left no stone unturned to make the tractor run a success. It is extraordinary what can be achieved when two rural communities get behind a genuinely worthy cause such as Emily Byrne, and we congratulate everyone on their efforts. Of course Emily remains very ill, and we wish her the very best on what will surely be a difficult year ahead.
Happy New Year!
To all our club’s supporters, players, members, officers,and committee members, we wish you all a Healthy,Happy and Prosperous New Year, and All Ireland success for the Deise!
