The Annual General Meeting of the Men’s Club took place in the Clubhouse on Friday 17th. Strict protocols were in place to ensure the safety of all Member’s present including pre-registration, admission on production of Covid certificate and a well-ventilated building.
The 2021 Captain, Billy Clancy welcomed all present to the AGM and during the course of his Chairman’s statement, Billy acknowledged the conclusion of another challenging year for the Club which reopened for business on 26th April after being closed for 4 months due to Covid and the work of all Committees and volunteers throughout the year.

Billy thanked in particular, his Men’s Committee who were a great support to him during 2021 and all others who contributed to the successful running of the Club including Course Staff, Volunteers, Governing Body, Ladies, Catering, Club Pro, Ashling, Club Sponsors, card checkers, Team Captains, Photographer and in particular, all the Club Members who contribute to the Club by representing Thurles on teams and supporting competitions and fundraisers.

The following Officers were elected to the Men’s Committee for 2022: Captain, Tom Maguire, Vice-Captain, Tom Fanning, Hon Secretary, Johnny Fogarty, Committee, John O’Connell and John Dwan. As there are a number of vacancies on the Committee to be filled, the incoming Captain addressed the Meeting and said he will be anxious to get nominations for the positions so he can co-opt to fill the gaps early in the New Year.

A discussion on Golf related matters took place during AOB and the Captain wrapped up the Meeting by thanking everyone for attending and wishing all a Happy and safe Christmas.
