There was a good attendance at the Monaghan Motor Club AGM on Friday night last 14th
January. A highlight of the evening was the launch of the revamped Monaghan Motor
Club website. The site can be accessed at www.monaghanmotorclub.net.
Club Chairman Paul Hughes during the course of his address, thanked the outgoing
Committee for its work in ensuring another successful year. He thanked the eight
Clerks of the Course, their assistants and the marshals who all worked to provide
good quality safe events. He thanked all the sponsors without whom the events would
not have run and especially the Hillgrove Hotel. The on-going co-operation of Monaghan
County Council, Monaghan Town Council and the Garda Siochana was also acknowledged.
Peadar McMahon and Rory Geary received special mention for their media coverage of
club events throughout the year. The Chairman congratulated club members who excelled
in 2010 at National and International level. He also paid a special tribute to Ronnie
Hawe on being presented with the inaugural Gerry MacNamara Memorial Award for the
most outstanding contribution to the club.
The Election of Officers and Committee for 2011 resulted as follows:
Chairman Paul Hughes, Vice Chairman Ronnie Hawe, Club Secretary Cora Maguire, Assistant
Secretary Brenda Flynn, Treasurer Cathal MacArtain, Assistant Treasurer Brendan Flynn,
Registrar Ronnie Hawe, PRO Ciaran Tynan.
Committee: Enda Sherry, Dessie Keenan, Damien Hagan, Kerry Stevenson, Gary McPhillips,
Conor Maguire, Thomas Treanor, Cathal McGlone and Carol Patterson.
Following the Annual General Meeting on Friday last, Ciaran Tynan has been elected
as club PRO for the forthcoming year. This is a position that requires a lot of feedback
from competitors doing events in order for weekly reports to be compiled and competitors
to get a mention in the papers etc. We ask that if you are competing somewhere, send
a quick e-mail with results or any stories regarding club members on events throughout
the year. These can then be added to weekly reports, otherwise you can’t be guaranteed
a mention. Ciaran’s e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org
