Clann na nGael AGM
Attention all members: Clann na nGael Annual General Meeting will take place Friday 14th of January @ 20:00 in the clubhouse. Its third time lucky, we hope!
Update on repairs to the clubhouse
There was extensive damage to the clubhouse pipework during the recent freezing weather. PJ Duignan and Padraig Harney have put in some great work to fix some of it. The good news is that mains water has been restored to the clubhouse. Central heating system leaks have been repaired and this is now working again. There was no water damage so far to the fixtures and fittings, including the museum. However toilets in the “old building” dressing rooms are damaged and out of order. All showers remain out of order due to various problems with pumps and mixers, however the water heating system is working, so it is hoped to restore showers to dressing rooms as soon as possible. As a result the main pitch will remain closed until further notice. The training pitch can be booked in the usual way.
Roscommon County Convention
As you maybe aware, Clann na nGael were to host Roscommon County Convention for the first time in Drum Community Centre before Christmas. However it was postponed due to the bad weather. Convention was subsequently rescheduled for the 8th of January 2011. Unfortunately, Drum Community Centre suffered a number of serious leaks in the thaw so we were forced to inform the County Board that we were unable to host it. Thanks to all the volunteers who agreed to help out in organising the event and those who had agreed to help on the day. The 2010 Convention will now take place in St. Brigid’s Clubhouse, Kiltoom this Saturday 8th January.
