This ( tonight)Wednesday night 23rd February 2005 sees the clubs of our county coming together for an Information Seminar on the Comhairle Programme in the Bush Hotel, Carrick on Shannon starting at 8.00 pm.
The aim of the programme is to enable club members take ownership of their clubs by participating in the process of planning for the club?s future. The programme will encourage clubs to plan in a systematic way to meet their short term and long term needs while also seeking to encourage more members to become actively involved in the running of the club.

This programme was devised by the National Club Planning and Development committee under the Chairmanship of Pat Fitzgerald of Limerick who will attend this Seminar along with National Co-ordinator Shane Flanagan of Croke Park, Liam O?Neill Leinster Council and Mick Rock Connaught Council.
It is very important that each club have in attendance their Chairperson, Secretary, Development Officer and Club PRO.

?We all have a duty to pass on what we took responsibility for in our club and ensure we leave it in as healthy a state as we were given it or better?.
