Murroe AFC AGM: The Murroe AFC AGM was held at the clubhouse in Tubber on Monday 18th June. With a good number in attendance, lively debate was had on many issues. The following were elected to the committee of the club for the coming season. Chairperson: Jimmy Quinn, Secretary: Timmy Rainsford, Treasurer: Pat O’Grady, Assistant Secretary: Greg Foley, Child Welfare Officer: Marcella Ryan, PRO: Don O’Malley. Committee: Ray Ryan, Paul Kett, Sarah Fitzgerald, Davy Holmes, Richie Long, Janice Ryan

The club would like to thank, and send best wishes to retiring officers Marie O’Flynn and Noel Regan. Marie has given sterling service as club secretary for over 10 years and will be a hard act to follow. Noel has been a member of the committee in various positions for over 20 years, and has been a key member of the club committee and coaching team during all of that time. Both of these fabulous club officers will be sorely missed. We wish them well in the future.
