We held our AGM this evening in the clubhouse. With great numbers in attendance, the committee discussed another very busy and successful year for the club. This year saw our Senior hurlers be promoted to Senior A for the 2020 season, a very positive step forward for our club. We also had a very positive year with our U21’s who reached the County Semi Final but were unfortunate to lose out to eventual winners Doon. This year also saw our Junior hurlers get a win over Doon, which was a highlight of their season. Our minors saw their season come to an end by the narrowest of margins with a loss against Ballybrown which meant they did not qualify for the County Semi Final. This year also saw our Junior footballers beat Bruree in the Championship which was the highlight of their season.
Our under age teams have had very successful year also and we would like to thank all those involved with Bord Na nOg for all their time, effort, and commitment over the year. We are looking forward to another great year in 2020.
On behalf of the club we would like to sincerely thank all the management teams of all the groups mentioned above. We appreciate the amount of time and effort you put into managing, coaching, and working with your teams and how much it benefits the club as a whole.
This year also saw us take on our big fundraising event ‘A Night at the OsKaRs’ which raised much needed funds for the 4G surface for the Wall Ball. Again we would like to thank everyone who was involved with the OsKaRs for making it such a successful event!
Huge well done to all our players who represented the club on inter county panels, school’s teams, and college teams. You represented yourselves, your family and the club so well!
