20 persons in attendance
Names?

Brian Fox- inquired about monies owed to him €1000 from previous years,stating that Des, Norman and Louise knew about this.
The current committee are not in receipt of any documentation relation to Brian's statement.
As far as I know there isn't any! That was also brought up at an EGM in August 2006 which Jude was chair, there were no receipts brought forward for 2006, 2007, 2008 or 2009 from Brian Fox.

Immediately after John McDonnells nomination, Robbie Lawlor nominated Norman Cloney to remain as I.F.A President, this motion was not seconded,and therefore not carried.
Don't you have to stand for President to be nominated as president (which Norm didn't) Or is this your way of having a public go?

Mamadou Cisse spoke about bringing the game forward and asked about what plans if any , are happening.
John McDonnell - discussed what is in the pipeline and plans for the immediate future of the I.FA ... All present seemed happy with this.
Is this private?


Nice job in slating Norm though, just what's needed to bring the players back together.
We had all the players in our house for years every Tuesday, I thought we made good hosts but then things starting going missing from our house. We entertained you for years and you kicked us both in the bollox.

Good Luck to the new committee, you need it!
