Mens AGM

The AGM of the mens club was held on Friday 11th December. Due to Covid-19 restrictions the meeting was held by Zoom.
Captain Aidan Farrelly opened the meeting and gave a good overview of how our year had gone and how we had managed to get most of our club competitions run off in the shorter timespan available to us. These competitions were very well supported especially the Captains and Presidents prize. He thanked all committees, course and clubhouse staff and volunteers for their tremendous efforts. Aidan thanked his Captains prize Sponsor Mr.Donal Farrelly Solicitor, for his generous sponsorship. He congratulated Declan Ryan on winning his lovely prize after a very competitive 2 rounds.
Secretary Pascal Troy presented his report and thanked everyone for their support. He announced that he was stepping down from committee. We thank Pascal for his great contributions to Birr Golf club having served on various committees including Captain. We wish him well for the future. Treasurer Vincent also presented his report to the meeting.
Outgoing Captain Aidan then asked incoming Captain Sean Doorley to take over as Chairman for the meeting. Sean introduced his Vice-Captain Kieran Horan to the meeting. He thanked Billy Donlon for being his President for 2021.
Outgoing President Liam Delaney addressed the meeting and said it was a great honour and privilege to have served as President and thanked outgoing Captain Aidan for asking to take on the role. He commended Aidan on his great stewardship of Birr Golf club in what has been a very challenging year. Liam thanked his Presidents prize sponsor "Birr Credit Union" for their generous sponsorship. Well done to Niall Shortt on winning on a great score of 60 nett. He thanked outgoing Lady President Brid for her great support and help throughout the year and wished her well.
Liam wished Captain Sean Doorley and committee well for 2021 and welcomed Mr.Billy Donlon as President for 2021.
