Outgoing Captain Marian Keating and Outgoing President Charlie Collins both addressed the meeting. They thanked all the members for their support during the year which at times proved difficult due to weather and cancellations, but with the members’ co-operation, were still able to get a full programme of outings complete . Marian welcomed Maureen Sweeney as Captain for 2024 and Charlie did likewise with Cynthia Furey as the 2024 Society President. Maureen announced that her Vice-Captain for next year will be Joe Blake. Another successful year for this long standing society and members left the meeting already looking forward to 2024.Tags:
