Banteer/Lyre GAA held a joint AGM at The Glen Theatre on Saturday the 18th of January. The meeting saw a healthy gather to discuss club matters. Secretary Martin Barry gave an accurate run down of the 2013 hurling year. He paid compliment to all those who had given time and effort to help out the club in 2013. Chairman Conor Lane echoed Martins comments and he extended thanks to all the players and the management who gave of their time during the year. Both men will remain in position for the coming year.

Neil O Shea gave his report on 2013 from the point of view of secretary of the Lyre football club. He complimented those who were involved in the capture of the Duhallow Junior A Championship. Neil also complimented the club on the calibre of players in its armour. He recommend avenues to explore for the progression of the club, including the up skilling of coaches in the club through channels laid out by the Duhallow board. John Joe Roche in his chairman’s address paid tribute to the panel and management of the Lyre footballers, but used the opportunity to give a well-deserved thanks to all who were involved on the logistics of the year. Donal Mannix was given a special mention from both Chairmen as someone who does monumental work for both the hurling and football outfits.

Connie Tarrant once again gave a meticulous run down of the clubs finances. He complement those who had done a lot of work fundraising for the club in 2013. Conor Lane went on to add that without these people, the club simply wouldn’t survive.

As the meeting progressed to the election of officers, the Banteer club saw no change with all officers having lots more to offer. In the Lyre club, Donal Murphy replaces Neil O Shea as Secretary and Emmett Buckley replacing Tim Murphy as PRO.

Management of both Junior A teams and both Junior B teams will remain the same for 2014. The meeting closed with the respective Chairmen wishing successes for 2014.
