G.A.A: Galtee Gaels G.A.A Club held their Annual General Meeting just before Christmas with a very large attendance in the dressing rooms. Chairman, Patrick English welcomed all present. The various reports were very well presented by Secretary Sean O’Donovan, Treasurer Tom Kearney, Registrar Ken Lane, Team Managers Anthony Moloney of the successful A Team and Patrick Cleary of the Junior B Team and P.R.O Aoife Gallahue. Club na n-Og Chairman Ger Condon presented a report on the Club also. There was a lot of concern at the fall back in fundraising, which seems to be across all organisations. Every effort will have to be made to increase the level of fundraising in 2014 to help maintain the very high standards the Club has set for themselves. Over the years, while everybody sees the times we are living in everything is tight. One of the main fundraisers the Club takes part in is the County Development Draw which is co-ordinated by Kieran Walsh and a group of promoters within the Club. Kieran presented a report on last years draw, showing subscriptions well up to date. He appealed for any outstanding monies to be collected as soon as possible before the 2014 draw commences. Election of Officers: Outgoing Chairman Patrick English did not seek re-election. Officers elected were as follows; President – Fr. Dick Kelly P.P, Vice Presidents – Jack Barry and Patsy Casey, Chairman – Mike Kelly, Vice Chairman – Tommy O’Dwyer and Club na n-Og Chairman, Secretary – Sean O’Donovan, Assistant Secretary Sean Lane, Treasurer – Tom Kearney, Registrar – Kenneth Lane, Development Officer – Liam Allen, P.R.O – Aoife Gallahue, Irish Officer – Patrick English. Draw co-coordinator – Kieran Walsh, Committee: Phil Quirke, John Moloney, Anthony Moloney, Timmy Breedy, Dan McCarthy, Patrick Cleary and Paul Morriarty. Anthony Moloney will continue to manage the Junior A team. John McGrath will manage the minor team and Junior B manager will be appointed later, as will various other selectors. Membership is set at €20 each which must be paid by 1st March 2014.

R.I.P: The community around Anglesboro was shocked and extremely saddened at the sudden passing of Billy Hogan or Barnagurrahy on Sunday 29th December. Billy attended his beloved mass at Anglesboro on Saturday evening and met his friends socialising afterwards. The shock was harder to bear having seen him out in perfect health the night before. Billy was one of those larger than life characters of the area, in fact he was a legend who attended horse fairs all over the Country and “Spancil Hill” was sung in his honour after the funeral. At all events in Anglesboro Billy would be one of the first to arrive with his horse and cart of a hay float to show how farming was done in the days gone by. Many people were enthralled by his work with early methods. He had a great love of animals. He always gave them great care. His great friend John Walsh formerly of Gerah gave a great account of their trips to fairs around the country, particularly when they went to buy an old horses cart for the re-enactment of the closing of the creamery at the Harvest Fair last September. Billy often went to buy items for many events without even being prompted. To his wife Mary, he is a huge loss. She has her own difficulties and we offer her our sympathy. Also sincere sympathy is extended to his brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews and a broad huge circle of friends. Removal took place from Frazers Funeral Home Galbally to St. Patrick’s Church Anglesboro, where members of the Community Council formed a guard of honour for one of their great participants and supporters. Following con-celebrated mass, burial took place in the church grounds on New Years day. Ar deis Lamh De go raibh a h-anam delis.
