Naomh Mearnóg Club Notes – 3 December 2018
Recent and Upcoming Games – After a cracking game of hurling, our under 21 team narrowly lost out in the Championship Final by 2 points. Thank you to our entire squad and their management group of Paddy Gorey, Dwayne Moore, Stephen Rafter and Cecil Ryan for a great effort. Congratulations to our opponents Craobh Ciaran who were worthy winners.
Well done to our minor camogie girls who have reached the Championship Semi-Final where they will meet Raheny.
Adult Games Awards Night Our very popular Adult Awards Ceremony (Mens) took place on Saturday night and the winners were as follows;
Football – Marcus Fitzmaurice, Conor Grant, Davey Stewart, Francis McGowan, Tom Cosgrove and Conor Ryan.
Hurling – Davey Byrne, Donal Lean, Mark Fitzgibbon, Niall Feeney, Jack Keogh and Eoin Kelly.
The adult dual player of the year was Marcus Fitzgibbon and the minor dual player was Eoin Kelly. Well done to all.
Married versus Singles Matches – A reminder that our Married V Singles games will take place on St. Stephens Day as usual. The hurling is at 12 followed by the football.
Club AGM – The club AGM takes place on the 6th of December starting at 8pm sharp. The AGM affords all full members the opportunity to have a say in how the club is managed and run. So, please come along.
The Black+Amber Plan – The Black + Amber Plan was created to provide a vision for how Naomh Mearnóg should develop as a club over the next five years. The Plan has taken extensive feedback from players, mentors, wider club membership and domain experts to determine how best to further progress the club over the coming 5 years.
The outgoing Club Executive has formally recommended the adoption of the Plan and the incoming Executive will review the Plan in detail and oversee its implementation. A summary of the Plan is now available to Club members on the Club’s website at http://www.naomhmearnog.ie/assets/uploads/2018/12/BA-Summary-Final.pdf
A short presentation on the Black + Amber Plan will be given at the AGM on Thursday night. If you have any feedback, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
