Ladies Night

The Ladies Night in the Club house on Thursday night last was a huge success and provided a great nights entertainment for all the Ladies of the parishes. Thank you to everyone that attended this event. Congratulations to Bernie Sammon on the successful implementation of her idea and to her organising committee.

Club AGM

The Annual General Meeting of the club was held on Saturday last with a great attendance. There are a couple of new members to the executive committee with Keith Grehan taking over from Diane Dennehy as secretary and John Daly taking over from Pat Dennehy as the chairman of the parks sub-committee. We would like to extend our thanks and gratitude to Pat Dennehy who steps down from the executive after fifty years of service. Pat is an extremely dedicated member of St. Brigid’s and has work tirelessly to help St. Brigid’s become as successful as it is today. Although he has stepped down from the executive we know that Pat will still remain a committed match goer and continue to be a major influence in the club in his role as Vice President.
