The Tipperary Cumann na mBunscol AGM took place in Hayes Hotel Thurles, last Monday night, January 24th, 2011. There was a good attendance on what was a very cold night.

Chairman Brian Boyle thanked all the teachers for all the time and commitment they devote to Cumann na mBunscol in Tipperary. He also thanked his fellow officers for their help and support throughout the year. He concluded by thanking Hayes Hotel for always making their facilities available to Cumann na mBunscol.

Once again, the success of the Equipment Scheme was acknowledged. PRO John Manley highlighted the crucial role the media play in raising the profile of our games and he gave special praise to the sports editors/columnists of the Tipperary Newspapers. He acknowledged the great exposure Shane Brophy of the Nenagh Guardian, Michael Heverin of the Nationalist, Tony Butler of South Tipp Today, Michael Dundon of The Tipperary Star and Noel Cosgrave of the Premier People give to our games. He thanked especially for the wonderful supplements that they produced at the time of our hurling finals.
