Marie-Louise Vacates The Chair

At the 2017 AGM of the Newmarket-on-Fergus camogie club, Marie-Louise Kaiser vacated the Chair after six years in the position.

An integral part of the GAA community in the parish, Marie-Louise will continue to serve on the Camogie Executive having been appointed as the new Development Officer where she will be assisted by Aimee McInerney.

In her address at Saturday’s AGM, Kaiser said “everyone deserves thanks for keeping Newmarket-on-Fergus camogie on the map”. Key to the success of the GAA is the input of players, mentors and officers who willingly give of their time to ensure the smooth running of the organisation. “Volunteers don’t see rewards in their bank accounts but on the faces of players”.

She outlined that the indoor training done every Thursday in January for underage teams was “a huge success”. Regarding the adult teams, Marie-Louise stated that strong interest at the beginning when a Junior team was entered “it didn’t work out” as the team pulled out after a couple of league rounds. Praise was given to the senior side for reaching a championship final for the third year in succession.

Touching on the importance of mentors attending requested courses and discussion days, she highlighted that they “must show a willingness to learn”.

Marie-Louise felt that the changes to the Camogie Executive “are good and needed”, she paid tribute to all fellow officers including the outgoing Elaine Lally and the newly appointed PRO “Lorraine has started with enthusiasm and will continue to do so”. Thanks was extended to the Club Executive for their support and respect.
