Chairman Mark Tully opened the meeting. The minutes from 2015 and the 2016 Secretary’s report were taken as read.
Jackie Haverty presented the 2016 Treasurer’s report.
Juvenile Chairman Mark Tully addressed the meeting and said it was encouraging to see so many at the AGM. He said the club had a very successful 2016 having had success in some major competitions.
He thanked all the managers, coaches and volunteers involved with U6 through to U16 in both codes that have given their time and effort throughout the year to make this happen.
He said the success in both hurling and football was very encouraging. In hurling we won the County Féile and the County community games. In football we won U14 Division 2 and U12 Group 5 football leagues. All wins were greatly appreciated by the club. With this success and strong performances for the other Age groups at Semifinal and Final stages of their competitions it puts the club in a good position for the future. For many years the club tried to win the hurling Feile competition and the dream of winning three in a row would not even be discussed. This year that dream came true and it has to be looked at as a major milestone in the club’s history.
He thanked everyone that helped in the fundraising for the Féile and to the mail sponsors Will
and Yvonne Dowling of Dowling’s bar, Seamus Crowe of the District Fitness and any one that made private donations. 2016 again saw Athenry regain the Community games title with a brilliant display of Hurling from the team at both county and All Ireland stages.
Early this year the club ran two courses, one for Child protection that was attended by 28 managers and coaches and the other for First aid in field sport that was attended by one Manager or coach from each under age group. Mark thanked the volunteers that attended these courses and any other volunteers that have attended the GAA foundation and Award 1 course.
He acknowledged the help that was received from the Athenry senior GAA club committee, county delegates Robbie Ruane (Hurling) and Brendan Burke (Football), Pitch coordinator
Sean Keane, Newcastle Community Centre; Pearse Mulhall (with facilitating us with their pitch), Joe Kelly, Mick Crimmins, Tom Cloonan and Mike Hession for their help with organizing the TY’s coaching at the local schools. All the volunteers that helped at the Joyce’s and church gate collections. The Sean McGovern school of Hurling again this year was a great success. Mark thanked Anne and Sean Keane and everyone that give their time in coaching the children at this event and Joyce’s 365 Supermarket for sponsoring the event. He went on to acknowledge Bus Eireann and Stephen Duane for the support that they have showed the club again this year and wished Stephen Duane all the best in his retirement.
Mark thanked the secretary John Cloonan and treasurer Jackie Haverty for their support and help throughout the year. He thanked the parents of the 300 members of the juvenile club for the dedication they have shown to the club throughout the year. Without their commitment none of this could happen. He thanked the lads that represented us at county level, Eoin Caulfield, Cillian Lawless, Noel Keogh, Jack Mc Cullagh, Shane Quirke, Paddy Rabbitte, Donal Parr, Eoin Lawless, Jamie Treacy, Mark Hardiman, Shea Hennessey, Ruairi Collins and Dara Noone.
Finally as he is not going forward as chairperson this year I would like to wish the club all the best for the future. He said he enjoyed his time both at coaching and as chairperson and would encourage more parents to get actively involved with the club.
The election of 2017 officers was as follows: Chairman: TBC, Treasurer: Jackie Haverty; Secretary: John Cloonan; Vice Chairman: Rob Ruane; Pro: John Cloonan; Child Welfare Officer; TBC
The election of managers for 2017 was as follows:
Age Football Hurling
U16 Tommy Moran Andrew Lawless
U14 Brendan Burke Eddie Brady
U13 Brendan Burke Eddie Brady
U12 TBC Paddy Kelly
U10 Barry Doyle Paddy Kelly
U8 Pat Donoghue Gerry Mannion
U6 Katharine Duane
Delegate Brendan Burke Robert Ruane

The meeting was interrupted a number of times by parents who had an issue with a certain manager. Mark responed by informing all present that no official complaints were received by the club and that there is a process in place and a procedure to follow in such cases which involves the Club’s Child Welfare Officer.
Kathy Dillon was proposed as chairperson for the Juvenile Club and seconded. Robert Ruane was also proposed and seconded for this position.
Senior Club Chairman addressed the meeting and encouraged all parents and managers to become full members of the senior club. He noted that anyone helping out with the club needed to be a full member. He reminded everyone of the benefits of club membership; draw for All Ireland tickets if Galway get to All Ireland Final, Footabll and Hurling qualifier match tickets for only €10, and provincial football tickets. He asked everyone to support the lotto, it is in shops/pubs or even online now. It can be played on your phone and the results are on Facebook on the following day. It is a great way to support the club. He commended Mark on his role as chairman of the Juvenile club and said it wasn’t an easy position and encouraged parents to help out more with managers and everyone should pull together. He thanked all managers past, present and future for their work for the club.
AOB: Tony Collins suggested that there needed to be photographs of recent County winning juvenile teams displayed on the walls of the club house. Mark Tully agreed and said it was being addressed and that the Role of Honour was also being updated to reflect recent success of juvenile teams.
Mark thanked everyone for attending, encouraged everyone to attend the senior Club AGM and wished all a happy Christmas.
Club Draw tickets were available for anyone who wished to help the club by selling a book of 5 tickets for €10 each. A number of parents and managers took these books.
