The Annual General Meeting took place on Friday evening last in the community centre. Chairman Bart Barrins welcomed a good attendance to the the annual meeting and reflected on the year within the club. In his address Bart acknowledged the work and dedication of club members, supporters, parents, players, teachers and all that are involved in anyway. Emphasis was put on the importance of fundraising in these challenging times and he asked everyone to do what they can to help out in any way possible. The club coaching scene was given great praise, 22 coaches received their foundation badges this year with 15 completing the level one course. Special mentions were given to the club players who represented the club at county level and also to the handball club for their continued growth, development and success and in particular Martin Cooney on his huge achievement on winning three All Ireland medals this year. Larry Jones was wished every success as county handball chairman. Club sponsors were thanked for their sponsorship of team jerseys, events and hoardings at the re-developed GAA Park. The attendance were asked to support all our local establishments and business people in the parish. Our new club facilities were highly commended and all the people who made this happen were thanked, and also the people who continue to maintain the grounds. The chairman wished all our ladies footballers playing with Eoghan Rua continued success and invited the club to use the facilities in Corballa at any time. The kit cleaners were thanked and to the ladies who hide in the background making many club events happen. Sympathies were extended to all who lost loved ones through out the year, and congratulations extended to those who got married or became parents.

Secretary Frank Barrett gave a detailed report on all club activities compiled by himself and assistant secretary Shane Feeney. He again thanked all involved in the club and encouraged more people to become involved with the administration side of the club, and for new and young volunteers to come on board.

Treasurer Darren Ruane produced a very detailed insight into the clubs income and expenditure. He outlined the calender of fundraising that is proposed for 2015 which includes several events already.
