Abbeyknockmoy Underage Hurling Club held it’s AGM recently in the Clubhouse, with a good crowd in attendance Chairman Declan Molloy welcomed everyone and paid tribute to the dedicated and hugely committed managers and coaches who sacrifice some much time to nurture our young hurlers in a fun filled environment. Declan also thanked all who supported the club in any way in the past year and especially all who contributed financially also. 

He thanked Seamus McWalter for providing training gear in the shape of socks, togs & tops for all our U12-U14 panels and thanked Seamus for treating all injured players during the year. He also thanked Marty Meehan of Tom Sheridans ,Kcocknacarra, Galway for providing finance for a new set of jerseys for our U12 panel. He Thanked Mary Coleman for facilitating our enormously successful Cul Camp. 

He also thanked our Club referees without which no game would ever proceed namely Sean Moran & David Staunton. Chairman thanked the Senior Club and Abbey Camogie Club for their support and co-operation in the year gone by, plus the co-operation of Monivea Abbey u/age football club under the leadership of Sean Langan. But the biggest word of gratitude went to the parents of all underage Parents who continue to support the club especially by transporting players all year to training and matches.
A treasurer’s report supplied by Treasurer Michael Coleman gave a detailed report of the huge cost of running such an active club such as ours and emphasised the constant need to support our lotto and monthly draw’s. 

All underage managers gave their reports on their various panels & managers / coaches for 2017 were elected.
It was hugely emphasised the need for more parents to get involved and help out at training especially the Friday underage sessions and we appeal to all parents to lend a hand no matter how small as every little bit really helps and we need parents to assist. Queries 086 8159309.
