Agm :

Emyvale CC held their Agm in the 4 Seasons Hotel on Friday evening. Around 50 members attended the meeting and beforehand the proceeds of the High Nelly bike run, €3028 !!, was presented to this year's charity Monaghan Cancer Treatment Support.  

The meeting was opened by Fergus Murray and a minutes silence was observed for deceased members and deceased family members.

The meeting then went through the agenda of minutes from last year , motions , Chairman's address, Pro report and then the recent online survey was shown on projector by Bruna McKenna. There where a few issues arising from the survey , the club TT and the hosting of the Co.Monaghan Championships.

The meeting voted to support the TT next year but not to host the Championships as numbers have been very low the past few years.

It was then onto the election of officers and committee. The new committee is listed above.

After AOB and some discussion there was the presentation of club prizes.  The youth group got their trophies for their efforts during the summer and Caolan McKenna got the Peter McMahon Shield for most improved young rider.

The ladies who raced in the Interclub series were given plaques as the club wouldn't have won the Interclub without their help, week after week. Paddy Sheridan was awarded Touring Member of the year and Stevie McCann was Club Member of the year.

Martin Connolly was awarded the Cadden Shield for winning the club TT, with Dara McKenna in second and Paddy Mulroe in third.

Thanks to everyone involved in organising the meeting, to Peadar McMahon for the photos and to the 4 Seasons Hotel.
