We extend condolences to all club members who lost relatives during the year, in particular the Allis family on the death of James and the Ryan family on the death of Paudy. Both families are tireless workers for the club.

We look forward to seeing all of you again in 2006 when the meeting will be held on the 2 nd and 3 rd of December at the usual venue.
