Annual General Meeting 2020   11/03/2020

The Annual General Meeting of Cumann na mBunscol took place in the Anner Hotel Thurles last Saturday March 7th.  Arrangements for the meeting were exemplary. Paddy Kelly, Cathaoirleach of Tipperary Cumann na mBunscol, welcomed delegates to the meeting. Paddy was delighted that Cumann na mBunscol had chosen to hold its AGM in the town where the GAA was founded. Liam Magee, Cathaoirleach of Coiste Náisiúnta, spoke of the environment in which Cumann na mBunscol has to compete, where other sporting codes are vying for the hearts and minds of the children in our schools. Liam said that it was appropriate that Thurles, the birthplace of the GAA , was venue for our AGM. He reminded delegates that Michael Cusack, founding father of the GAA, was a teacher himself.He also revealed to delegates that a number of children had died in Croke Park. Development Officer Tim O Byrne was unavoidably absent as he had travelled to Kingscourt for the Cumann na mBunscol Handball Blitz. 

Liam Magee paid tribute to Jim Fennelly who stepped  down from the Coiste Náisiunta after a decade of outstanding service, on the Committee and as our representative on the Ard Chomhairle. Joe Lyons  succeeded Jim as leas Rúnaí having served as PRO for the past five years. In the only contest of the AGM, John Manly of Tipperary was elected as PRO. 

Leas Cathaoirleach Fidelma Sheridan spoke to delegates about plans to mark the 50 th anniversary of Cumann na mBunscol in 2021. Fidelma filled delegates in on arrangements for a black tie celebratory dinner in February 2021. There will not be an Awards ceremony in 2021.
