THIS YEARS SHOW WILL BE HELD ON AUGUST 18th
A great crowd attended the AGM held on January 24th, in spite of rather inclement weather. President Eileen Doyle welcomed everyone to the meeting and moved through the agenda in a most efficient manner. The energy and positivity must be channelled into the 2013 show rather on the disappointment of having to make the dreaded 'no show' call only 2 days before the event in 2012. She was confident that the correct call was made on the day. She thanked each and every person who worked tirelessly throughout the year in the name of Tullow Show. She wished incoming President Peter Sutton , and the new committee the best of luck and assured the meeting of her continued support.
It was an unusual year as all top table officers were retiring and was very happy that the Society would continue to be led by a very competent and dedicated team.
Our Patrons - Rev Orr, Rev Leahy and Mon Byrne will be joined by Rev Shelly who has recently joined the parish.
President - Peter Sutton, Chairman - David Burgess, Secretary - John Nolan, Treasurer - Imelda Keogh, PRO - Cora Browne,
Safety Officer - Robert Keogh. Mary Maher will continue to be Accountant for the Society and presented a full set of accounts which nobody really wanted to see! She remarked that cancelling a show had to include financial consideration.
All present will continue to be committee members, as is the precedent in the Society. The meetings for the new year will be held in the Tara Arms on the 1st wed of every month at 8.30. A vote of sympathy was passed for deceased members and all enjoyed chat and supper long after the meeting ended.
