Bringing us up to date on the recent happenings of Craobh CCÉ, Cúil an tSúdaire.
At our very well attended AGM, reports were adopted from the Officers on the big level of activities undertaken for the past year.
An Rúnaí, Shirley Conway, presented a comprehensive and lengthy report of all our activities. It was much commented on for it’s inclusive and colourful content.
An Cisteoir, Teresa Keller, reported a healthy balance and thanked everyone who had helped out in the various fundraisers held over the year, the Committee, the Members and the Musicians who were not found wanting and gave freely and willingly of their time and effort.
Reports were received from the other Officers as laid out in the Agenda and all reports were unanimously adopted.
The Outgoing Executive and Committee (with some new faces) was re-elected.
Arrangements were put in place to make presentations on behalf of the Branch to those performers who represented us and themselves with great success at Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann in Ennis 2016. Mementos were presented to Mary O’Donnell, Clare and Seán Faherty, Senan and Cillian Moran, Fionn Connolly, Ciara and Diarmuid Faherty at a Function and Session in the Anvil Inn, Main Street, in the upstairs Restaurant. A very enjoyable night was held with refreshments laid on.
The end of Term Christmas Party was held in Assembly Hall of the Boys’ Primary School on Friday night 16th Dec ’16. A large number of ‘well dressed’ performers and helpers turned out for the occasion.
