ALMOST 90 members attended the annual general meeting of Wolfe Tones na Sionna at the clubhouse in Shannon this Tuesday night.

Outgoing chairman John O’Toole described the previous 12 months as, “another roller coaster year for Wolfe Tones” which saw success at underage and in the adult ranks as Wolfe Tones footballers won the Intermediate championship and returned to Senior football after a year’s absence. The senior hurlers, however, fell foul of the relegation battle that left five more teams playing at intermediate level in 2015.

The huge turnout saw the election of Mike Riordan unopposed as chairman of the club, with Mark O’Sullivan elected vice chairman, while Amanda Hogan remains as secretary of the club.

Eithne Dooley is the new assistant secretary and the new club treasurer is Andy Carr; John Riordan was elected assistant treasurer, Elaine Donnellan retained the registrar role, and Gary Fitzgibbon is the new indoor officer.

Also newly elected is the outdoor officer Larry Donnellan, who is also the club groundsman. The PRO is Ron Kirwan, Davy Dunne was elected to represent the players and is also equipment officer, Brian Fitzgerald was elected Irish officer and Johnny Markham is the adult games chairman for 2015.

Kathy Hogan remains the club’s First Aid Officer and Children’s officer and Brian McInerney was elected Schools Liaison officer.

Long-time club delegates Joe Kelly and John Morris were not standing this year and Chris Price and Matt O’Connor will represent Wolfe Tones as county board delegates in 2015.

Ladies football delegates are Sharon and Frank Casey and Bernie Regan, while the outgoing executive appointed Paul Hogan as coaching officer and Kevin Hehir as club president.

A number of team managers were elected on the night, including Brendan Hughes, Senior football; Aaron Leahy, U21 football; Eoghainn Logan, Junior B hurling; Larry McIntyre, Junior C hurling and Bobby McPhillips, U21 hurling. Other managerial appointments are being finalised.

Dual player and former Clare senior hurling captain, Brian O’Connell, was named Clubperson of the Year.
