As you were in Ross Dis­trict

Wexford People - - SPORT -

IT WAS a case of as you were at the New Ross Dis­trict G.A.A. an­nual gen­eral meet­ing in Tagh­mon on Wed­nes­day.

All out­go­ing of­fi­cers were re-ap­pointed at the well-at­tended meet­ing which means that De­nis Nolan re­mains as Chair­man while P.J. O’Far­rell is still Sec­re­tary.

The Geral­dine O’Han­ra­hans club had the hon­our of choos­ing the Pres­i­dent for the com­ing year and their choice, Mon­signor Joe McGrath, proved to be a very pop­u­lar one.

De­nis Nolan con­grat­u­lated all clubs which won county ti­tles dur­ing 2017 and paid a spe­cial trib­ute to the St. Mogue’s hurlers who are still in the hunt for an All-Ire­land ti­tle.

Nolan also com­mended the Geral­dine O’Han­ra­hans on their dou­ble suc­cess at Un­der-21 level in the Dis­trict, and he a hoped that the club would build on this suc­cess in the com­ing years.

P.J. O’Far­rell re­flected on a year in the Dis­trict when a to­tal of 75 games were played in all com­pe­ti­tions. He thanked the clubs for their co-op­er­a­tion and said that all fix­tures ran smoothly.

Lizzie Kent was present in her ca­pac­ity as Health and Well­be­ing Of­fi­cer for the New Ross area of the G.A.A., and she en­cour­aged all clubs to ap­point such an of­fi­cer within their own clubs. She ex­plained that the pur­pose of this of­fi­cer is to en­sure that the club is a health­ier place for ev­ery­one to en­joy by communicating the good work that clubs do and pro­mot­ing health­ier life­styles.

County Chair­man, Derek Kent, was full of praise for the New Ross Dis­trict and the work that was be­ing done to pro­mote the games in the area. He wished all clubs well for 2018 and said he was al­ready look­ing for­ward to the Ross Dis­trict an­nual awards night on Fe­bru­ary 24.

Other of­fi­cers to be re-ap­pointed were Pat Walsh as Vice-Chair­man, Michael Wal­lace as As­sis­tant Sec­re­tary, Michael Bowe and John Han­ton as joint Trea­sur­ers, and Paudie Fo­ran as P.R.O.
