In their report, secretary Mary McLoughney and assistant secretary Gilbert Williams gave a comprehensive review of activities during 2017.

Chairman Matt Cleary, who stepped down after his three-year-term, thanked everybody for their co-operation and assistance while he was in the chair. The nomination process worked very effectively and all positions were filled on the night: Presidents Tom Cleary, Tom McLoughney, Len Gaynor and Fr. Enda Burke; Vice-Presidents Martin O’Meara, John Heenan, Carmel Daly and Joe McCarthy; Chairman Joe Whelan; Vice-Chairman Matt Cleary; Secretary Mary McLoughney; Assistant Secretary/PRO Gilbert Williams; Treasurer John Mulcahy; Assistant Treasurer Michael Cahill; Registrar Carmel Daly; Child Welfare Officer Yvonne O’Looney; Injury Claims Officer Kay Cahalan; North & County Board Delegate Gilbert Williams; School Liaison Officers Brian England, Barney Naughnane, John O’Meara and Gilbert Williams.

Congratulations to Joe Whelan who was unanimously elected to fill the role of chairman. He assured delegates that he would spare no effort in an attempt to drive Kilruane MacDonaghs forward in the coming years.

The Kilruane MacDonaghs club would like to wish its supporters, players, committee and officials a peaceful Christmas and a New Year blessed with good health and filled with contentment. We remember those who suffered bereavement during the year and all our parishioners, who are in exile, are also very much in our thoughts.
