Our Annual General Meeting took place on the 15th of December in Hayes Hotel. The hard work put in by all members in 2017 was reflected upon. Thank you to outgoing Club Officers Paul Mahony and Adrian McGinley for their service in the past number of years. We are sure that their successors will aptly fill their roles. It was also great to be see some of our younger members elected as committee members.
The following positions of Club Officers were ratified on the night:
Chairperson: Kieran O’ Dwyer
Vice Chairperson: Paul Shelley
Secretary: Pat Flanagan
Assistant Secretary: Philomena McNamara
Treasurer: Brian Fitzgibbon

Our newly elected Club Officers look forward to working with all players and members of Thurles Gaels in 2018. We hope that through hard work, enthusiasm and teamwork our club will continue to grow.
The Presentation Sports Complex was transformed into a winter wonderland on Saturday last as we held our very first ‘Thurles Gaels Family Christmas Party.’ Dozens of our young members thoroughly enjoyed the occasion. They met Santa himself, had storytelling with Mrs. Clause and played Christmas games. A sincere thank you to committee members, mentors and parents for their hard work and generosity which made the day such a success. It was a fitting end to the year, highlighting the dedication of our volunteers that has been so apparent.
Following our AGM on 24th of November the following club officers were elected:
Chairperson: Margaret Cosgrave
Secretary: Shelly Loughnane
Assistant Secretary: Sara Leahy
Treasurer: Amy Jordan
PRO: Eimear O’ Dwyer
