AGM 2010
Cavan ladies AGM was held recently in the Farnham Arms Hotel which saw a new chairperson elected for 2010. Eamon Reilly from Ballyhaise was duely elected as the new chairman and brings with him vast experience to the county board. He said he was honoured to take the position and would work hard to bring Cavan ladies to the forefront of provincial and national notoriety. He thanked his predecessor Raymond Brady for all his hard work in a very successful term.
Outgoing Secretary Martha Brady produced a very detailed report of 2009 outlining the huge amount of activity in the ladies football association in Cavan. She also highlighted that although silver wasn't to be for 2009 the county teams put in some great performances. She thanked the clubs and congratulated the winners in all competitions. She thanked the men's county board and especially Liam McCabe in Kingspan Breffni Park and all the staff for their assistance during the year.
Treasurer Mary Daly presented a financial report with special reflection on the increasing expenditure involved in running the county board affairs. She proposed that in 2010 that prudence would be in effect and that spending would have to be carefully curtailed given the current economical climate. Fundraising would have to adhere to be done on a smaller scale but with more vigour to bring in essential revenue for the county board expenses.
Registrar Patricia King quoted an increase in membership in the association especially with the establishment of new underage structures. However she added that many mentors and committee members were not been registered by the clubs and that this issue would have to be resolved in 2010. The introduction of Garda vetting by Croke Park should eliminate this problem and all clubs were warned that severe consequences would be warranted if registration wasn't forthcoming. She also said that in 2010 a new formula for collection of registration forms and a set date would be put in place to ease the administrative workload involved. Clubs would be informed at a later date as to the new arrangement.
Outgoing Chairperson Raymond Brady thanked all the clubs for their outstanding work over the years especially with the successful hosting of Feile in 2008 and last year the launching of the strategic plan and the development of county underage teams. He highlighted the pride he felt when the senior team were honoured by Cavan county council after their win in the National league. He asked everyone present to remember their past president Tom Dowd RIP who had given up so many years of commitment and service to bring ladies football to the forefront of society. The chairman said Tom would be forever remembered by those that new him all over Cavan and Ireland. He thanked Eamon Reilly for all his hard work during the year with fixtures and all the committee members for their time and effort during 2009. Raymond especially thanked the secretary Martha Brady for her endless time she put into ladies football. He finally thanked everyone for their support during his term adding that the association is a very strong unit in Cavan and that everyone should be proud of their efforts.
