Camogie board looks back on 2009 season

The camogie playing season has come to an end but preparations are now underway for the new season.
At last week’s camogie board meeting, the bylaw committee presented its report. The committee members provided an updated version of the bylaws and also adjusted some of the present bylaws.
These were unanimously adopted at the November meeting, which was held at the Auburn Lodge Hotel, and will be sent to the association’s Ard Comhairle for approval.
Treasurer Michael Maher updated the board’s finances and reminded all clubs that the board is still in the process of trying to secure a field from Clare County Council.
Chairperson Orla Considine, backed this up, adding that negotiations are ongoing and a report is due back from the EPA. She informed the board that all work is finished on a GAA playing field at Doora, with a small area for training beside it.
“This field is fully drained and has been seeded and GAA goal posts erected. There are other interested parties also talking to the council in relation to the field,” she said, before reminding the delegates that there is a long-standing commitment from the council to Clare camogie to provide the organisation with a playing field.
The camogie board has informed the council that they are happy to use the field as it currently stands and that if the EPA come back with a decision that further building cannot take place on the site, that this will not stand in the way of the council upholding its long standing commitment to the board. She urged all clubs to remind their local councillors of the need of the camogie board in this regard and to ask their GAA clubs to do likewise.
Fixtures secretary Bríd McNamara, complimented all clubs, teams, mentors, club officers and the fixtures committee for getting the fixtures plan completed on time.
The date for the AGM is set for Wednesday, December 9 at 7.30pm in the Auburn Lodge Hotel. Nominations and motions are to be returned to the county secretary by November 18.
In preparation for the convention, clubs are being invited to a development meeting at the Auburn Lodge Hotel next Tuesday evening at 8pm to discuss fixtures, competitions and structures for the year ahead.
This is an important forum for the clubs to get a chance to air their views and they are invited to send an officer, underage and adult mentor from the club to the meeting.
