To Concerned gael -
St Malachy's membership costs are broadly in line with other local clubs (some are more, some are less, some have different charging structures e.g. friends of schemes etc) and the new family membership is a saving for many families and hopefully will broaden our membership.
The member may not be aware of membership costs fees that accrued from Croke Park, which in the case of Camogie is actually higher than our new membership fees. Add insurance costs etc and membership fees in no way cover the outlay to County Board/Croke Park
The accounts of St Malachy's are an open book to all members and all costs and income were detailed in a comprehensive report provided by our Treasurer at the AGM. Membership costs were extensively debated at the AGM and the consensus of members attending was that costs should increase and that the executive committee were tasked to implement a family membership.
Training costs are in line and in most cases cheaper than other clubs and monies collected are used to hire facilities and supplement all other costs associated with running a club. Life would be so much simpler if we didn't have to do as much fundraising…but if we want to keep the gates open it simply has to be done. Last man Standing made a small profit this year…mainly due to the fantastic jersey offer…an offer that no other club has made.
Finally - please feel free to discuss your concerns with myself or any committee member in confidence at any time.

Could someone please come out and clarify the embarrassing costs now associated with our club at present? Membership of £30 is the most expensive in the county and as for charging primary school children £10 can only be deemed scandalous. We should be begging children to play for our club. Now I see that each child is being charged £2 to train, again this is embarrassing. I appreciate that it is expensive to run a club but it is not as if we ever stop fundraising, it is one thing after another, the last man standing along resulted in circa £4,000 profit. I would leave my name but I'd rather not be the target of abuse for highlighting that our club is the talk of the county and obviously not for football

As we come to the end of 2014, we would like to thank all those people who helped out in the management and organisation of our youth teams from U6 to minor level. Anyone who is willing to help out in any capacity in 2015 is asked to contact our new Youth Officer Martin McConnell. A meeting will take place in January to outline plans for the year. Please consider one of these very important jobs within our club. Youth teams require plenty of support and encouragement and no one will be turned away. Past players and parents are encouraged to a role to play in this exciting challenge.
