AGM 2016 – 16 January at 8.30pm
Flipeadóirí Longfoirt - notes Well done to Longford with a perfect start to 2016 in winning against Wicklow and coming out on top of the group in the O Byrne cup at Pearse Park last Sunday. Longford got through on points difference to top the group and its that type of luck that a team needs to make the difference and remain in contention. Longford had to work hard playing the third game in a week and some of the players were showing wear and tear but battled it out to take the win and gain the victory in the group. Flipeadóirí Longfoirt was well represented on the day with Dermot Brady, Michael Brady, Andrew Dalton, Barry Gilleran, Colm Farrell and Peter Foy all in action. Colm Farrell got his first senior start in county colours and had a first class game making that crucial save near the end which proved the difference on the day. It is a great credit to Slashers to have so many players togging out and truth be known there are another half dozen in the club ready to step up as well. Michael Brady has been having a great start to the year netting a fine goal against Westmeath during the week. Its a boost to Eugene McCormack as Slashers manager to have players involved in competitive games early in the season. There was a great turn out for the first senior meeting of the year with Eugene and the club looks forward to building on that enthusiasm. AGM 2016 Slashers AGM takes place on Saturday 16 January at 8.30 in the club. Its essential that all associated with the club turn up for a lively discussion and election to the club executive. This is the one time of year when the members get a chance to offer ideas and their time to the year ahead. Many hands make light work and we appeal to all those linked to our great club to attend on the evening as a show of support especially those who have been involved in previous years and who may have drifted away. Remember its better to light a candle than curse the dark so all are welcome from all sections of the club to ensure that 2016 is our best year yet. Míchael Walshe club secretary has a full agenda and motion papers prepared to ensure an efficiently run meeting. Dónal Brady has indicated he will not be seeking re-election as Chairman and so we will be wishing Dónal all the very best and Míle buíochas for his many years of great service to our club as Chairman.
