Chairman John Hackett thanked all those who assisted in any way with the huge development works carried out in the club over the past 12 months which included the installation of a members gym, walking track including lighting, new dugouts, goalposts (adult & juvenile) and ballstoppers and all these will be of huge assistance to the club members for many years to come.
There was also huge thanks given to all those who organized, took part in and supported our Club Memorial Cycle Cloneygowan to Wexford in April in memory of the Late Emmett & Yvonne O’Connor.
On the field the efforts of all the players were acknowledged as the club reached the Intermediate Final for the second year in a row where we just missed out on the title and it was announced that a new Intermediate Management Team comprising of Jimmy Stewart from Clara (All Ireland U 21 Winner, NFL Div 1 Winner & Assis Manager / Selector with Offaly Senior Footballers on 3 occasions) along with Brendan Owens (former Tullamore senior footballer and coach) and Sean Sweeney has been put in place to drive the team on for 2023 and we would like to welcome them onboard and wish them the very Best of Luck.
