Western Board Convention:
Tallow GAA Club hosted the Western Board Convention in the Community Centre last Thursday night. It was a particularly emotional occasion for our Club President, Eddie Cunningham who was stepping down as Chairman of the Western Board having served 5 years in the position. Board officers and club delegates were fulsome in their praise of a man who has given more than 50 years service at club and county level to Cumann Luthcleas Gael. He has been unstinting in his service over half a century in various roles as a player, coach, referee and administrator. He is the epitome of a community activist and plays a central role in many voluntary organisations. While he is taking a well deserved break from active GAA involvement, we are not ready to wish him a happy retirement just yet. He has much more to offer.
Health and Wellbeing:
Jimmy O'Gorman spoke passionately at the convention about the importance of this issue within clubs and communities. He recommended that all clubs should select rather than appoint somebody appropriate as Health and Wellbeing Officer. We will be taking his advice.
Tickets are still available in local shops or contact, Kate.
Sincere thanks to Kenirys Centra who have supplied food for the teams on several occasions throughout the year.
