The Minister of Sport (Deputy Michael Ring) and the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs (Deputy James Reilly) have confirmed that they will attend the club this Tuesday – 15th December @ 6pm. They will review our new All Weather pitch facility that benefited from a generous Sports Capital Grant. All club members are invited to attend.
Thank you to all who attended the Strategy Update on Thursday 03rd Dec in the main hall of the club. The 6 main themes and the corresponding recommendations were reviewed and there was very positive and constructive engagement from all on the night. We will now move to the execution of the recommendations that are contained in the report. In January we will look for volunteers to join the strategy teams to put together action plans to implement the recommendations that have been made. We encourage members to get involved and if you would like to be involved please call Brendan McGrath (087-2747127). A reminder will be issued in January.
Good News – there is no increase in any of the annual fees for 2016. Forms will be available this week from the club bar or on line on the clubs web site www.fingallians.com
