2014 Committee Decided

THE annual AGM took place on Sunday afternoon and, with seven outgoing members of the committee, this was an important meeting for the club.

The departure of Michael Heffernan from the Chairperson position was met with unanimous acknowledgment that he had brought the club on leaps and bounds throughout his tenure and he steps down with the upmost respect and gratitude from everyone at the club.  Michael will be replaced by Tony Jackson as the new chairman of Steelstown and we wish him all the very best, confident that he will continue to do the sterling work he has contributed to the club for so long now.

Sean Heraghty also vacated his Vice Chairperson role after tireless efforts to support Michael during his time in charge and we have no doubt that Sean will still be the same invaluable club man that he offers as a service every single day.  Paddy McGurk comes into the role with the best wishes of the committee and the club.

Ann Lindsay will move from Secretary to Assistant Secretary and, anyone who has had any dealings with the club in any way over the last couple of years, they will have had dealings with Ann and her meticulously flawless efforts both in the office and on the ground, supporting absolutely every function of the club.  Brendan Doherty steps up from assistant in a role reversal with Ann with the thanks and confidence of the committee.

After a superb year managing the club accounts, Louise Logue stepped down from the Treasurer position which she looked after so well.  Louise dedicated a lot of hard work to keeping the finances of the club documented and under control during a very healthy year for Brian Óg’s and she leaves the post with everyone’s thanks.

Louise’s daughter Orlaith comes in along with Gerard Roarty to the Youth Officer positions after the absolutely fantastic precedent set by Mark Rabbett and Brid Moore and, if Orlaith and Gerard are half as committed and enthusiastic as Mark and Brid were, they’ll not go far wrong.

Dominic Concannon also steps down from the Coaching Officer role from which he set a remarkable template for all underage groups at Steelstown to follow.  Dominic’s work with all teams at Brian Og’s, his involvement in the Feile, and in helping to educate new and existing coaches at the club has been second to none and he goes with huge admiration to be followed by Martin Dunne who will no doubt continue the excellent work left for him.

A new position was also proposed by outgoing Chairman, Michael Heffernan, that the role of Merchandise Officer be added to the committee and, after unrivalled efforts and roaring success in this area already, Grainne Concannon was voted in with unanimous approval.

See below the new committee for Steelstown Brian Óg’s.  Contact details will be updated as soon as possible.

Brian Óg McKeever in memoriam

Brian Óg played a key role in Steelstown’s run to the Dr Kerlin Cup title in 2008, the club’s first senior silverware. He is picture here with the squad after the final (middle row, second from left).

Today, Steelstown remembers the life of one of its finest ever players and one of its best young men.

Brian Óg McKeever passed away five years ago but, in such a short life time, the legendary number five set an inspiring legacy for his club and the whole community to follow. To abide by his spirit is the best thing Steelstown could’ve ever done.

Today, let’s celebrate the life of Brian Óg and all the good times and memories and inspiration that he left behind and continues to leave.

There will be an anniversary mass held on Sunday at St. Joseph’s Church in Galliagh at 11am for a young man who was, is still, and will always be a huge part of our club.

Brian Ógs abú.
