Midleton GAA AGM

The Midleton GAA Annual General Meeting will take place on Wednesday 9th December 2020.

This year we will hold an 'AGM Day' as opposed to our normal  AGM. 

Therefore we will NOT meet in our Clubhouse and it will NOT take place online.

‘AGM Day’

The Executive of Midleton GAA has decided to opt for the 'AGM Day' option.

This is for several reasons:

  • Given the Current Covid 19 restrictions and the fact that we normally have a minimum of 60 to 100 people at an AGM means we will not be able to meet in our Clubhouse until who knows when.
  • Also, from using online technology for the last number of months for Executive Meetings the view of the Executive is that it would not be suitable for our AGM for potentially 60 to 100 people.
  • The ‘AGM Day’ option is formally approved by the GAA.

Using the ‘AGM Day’ formats means we will observe the normal formalities of a GAA AGM but not have an actual AGM Meeting in person or online.

  • We will circulate Notice of the AGM, Nominations and Motions papers to members in the normal way.
  • Any votes that are required will take place by post.
  • All reports e.g Secretary's and Financial as well as Chairman’s Address to the Meeting will be circulated to members in advance.
  • On the actual AGM Day the election of Officer’s and the new Executive Committee is confirmed.
  • Any question regarding content of reports may be submitted in writing to the new Executive Committee who will reply within 7 days after of the AGM Day

A more detailed overview of running Club AGMs remotely with Liam Keane of the GAA's Rules Advisory Committee can be seen if you use the link below. The total video is 18 minutes long and the relevant piece about ‘AGM Day’ starts at minute 6 on the video.

Bloody Sunday 100 Year Commemoration

A microcosm of the War of Independence; the events of Bloody Sunday on 21st November 1920 marked a decisive turning-point in Irish history.

In Croke Park, the Dublin and Tipperary football teams lined out for a great challenge match. Spectators filled the grounds, completely unaware that the RIC were mobilising, intent on carrying out an act of deadly retribution for the earlier assassinations of British intelligence agents by Michael Collins’ Squad. 10 minutes into the game, shots rang out. The firing lasted for 90 seconds, killing 14 civilians and injuring 60 more.

Later that evening, the killing of two high-ranking Dublin IRA officers, Dick McKee and Peadar Clancy, and Irish language enthusiast, Conor Clune, in Dublin Castle brought the tragic day to an end.

As the national custodian of all of the archives and artefacts of the Gaelic Athletic Association, the GAA Museum is honoured to remember the 100th anniversary of Bloody Sunday.

Celebrating Ireland’s national games and how the GAA has contributed to our cultural, social and sporting heritage is at the heart of everything we do. Remembering Bloody Sunday is therefore of utmost importance to us and we invite you to remember it with us through our sensitively curated, diverse events programme.

The GAA website contains some fantastic content that is well worth browsing

Ladies Football

AGM

On Friday evening Nov 20th Midleton Ladies Football had their annual AGM. Slightly different format this year as it was held online but very productive all the same. Many Thanks to all those who logged onto Microsoft Teams. The meeting was led by our Club Chairman Paddy Corcoran and he laid out the plans for the new year to come for our Club. He thanked Midleton GAA for all their help and co-operation during this difficult year. Special thanks were also given to Ballinacurra GAA for the use of their facilities.

The Officers that were elected on the night are as follows:

Chairman: Paddy Corcoran

Vice Chair: Brian Sheedy

Secretary: Mairead Beausang

PRO: Tracy Saunderson

Registrar: Amy Quirke

Child Welfare Officer: Ber Kelly

Irish Officer: Donnacha Tagney

East Cork Board Delegate: Deirdre Kenny

Going forward into 2021 we have coaches assigned to each group from U8 to Junior. We would love for more Parents to get involved especially in our younger groups. If you feel you can spare some time each week at your daughters training and help out at matches please let Tracy know on 087-6625544.

As a club we would like to give a special mention to all the Parents for their support throughout this year. You travelled in great numbers each week to training and matches. It is great to see so many girls turn up at each session. We wish you all the best for the remainder of the year and look forward to seeing you all in the New Year.
