Sincere sympathy is extended to the family of the late Pat and Nora (Ciss) O’Connor, Milleen who died recently. May they rest in peace.


Our AGM was held last Sunday virtually and was well co- ordinated by Ciara Kelly. A report was given on the progress of the club's development both structurally and financially by the development committee and they are happy that it is nearing completion and should be ready for the start of this season. Chairman Eugene McSweeney outlined the huge input from volunteers, sponsors, club members and the wider Kilcummin community at home and abroad that made this possible. He also noted the dedication of the main developer and the sub-contractor in completing a facility that will be enjoyed for generations to come and lauded the commitment of the development committee over the last three years to see it to its conclusion.Joint Treasurer Tim Casey stepped down after an incredible 16 years and was replaced by Pat O’Connor, while Willie Fleming was appointed Assistant Chairperson. Kieran Fleming takes over Insurance Officer from Donal Dwyer while Brid Fleming becomes Club Registrar. PRO for the last 8 years Michael O Riordan has stepped down and the executive will undertake to fill that position in the coming weeks
