Summary: The Banner Ladies AGM was conducted on Jan 26th 2011 in the Woodstock Hotel. See the elected officers and committee.
Description: At the 2011 AGM of the Banner Ladies Football Club held in Woodstock Hotel on January 26th. , the Chairperson’s review of the years activities highlighted successful achievements in most grades, an All-Ireland title at Intermediate level seven-a-side and juvenile membership is as high as it have been in several years allowing two teams to be fielded at U10, U12 & U14 grades for the coming year. Continued cooperation with the Banner men’s football club sees all teams returning to training at the Shanaway Road venue in 2011 which has seen several new developments including a new underage pitch. Social participation in the club can be gauged as high by the recent well-attended dinner dance. Chairperson Sonya Maher paid tribute to the sterling service and commitment to the out-going officers, Treasurer Bernie Brennan and Maura Cavanagh, Registrar who stepped down after seven years and also to Kathleen O’Brien who has been tireless in her involvement as underage coach and Martina Martin as Cultural Officer.

The committee extended its appreciation to Chairperson Sonya Maher and Secretary Louise Henchy for their stewardship over the last two years, having also indicated that they would not be seeking re-election this year. Joe Reidy has been elected as Chairperson for the coming year.
