Another successful season was marked recently as Enniscorthy Hockey Club held its Annual General Meeting at the IFA Centre, Enniscorthy
Chairperson Jim Rogan in his speech to club members reflected upon a season with plenty of on-pitch success and thanked all members, coaches and players for their efforts, as well as Marie Dunphy of the IFA Centre for providing a venue for meetings.
On-pitch updates were provided by co-ordinators Deirdre Morris, Lesley Miller, Keith Ogilvie, Irene Doyle, Fraser Rothwell and Pauline Rogan. Underage hockey at the club provided many highlights throughout the season and is continuing to flourish; the hope is that this will continue to feed through to the club's five adult teams.
New officers for the 2017-18 season were also elected. There was no change in the role of Chairperson, with Jim Rogan taking the position for a further year. Alan Smith has taken the role of Secretary, Laura O'Leary Treasurer, Kieran Costello PRO, Irene Doyle Women's Co-ordinator, Fraser Rothwell Men's Co-ordinator, Lesley Miller Junior Boys Co-ordinator, Deirdre Morris Junior Girls Co-ordinator, Pauline Rogan Youth Boys Co-ordinator, Fiona Kidd Youth Girls Co-ordinator, Club Gear Officer Andrew Rothwell, Hockey Development Officer Donal Doyle, Children's Officer Linda Durnan, Designated Person Eva Clifford, Health and Safety Keith Ogilvie.
