The fifth AGM of the Galway Hurling Supporters Club was held on Wednesday 24 April in the Clayton Hotel, with the GHSC calling on the hurling public to join them and support the development of Galway Hurling.
On a busy night, Eamon Bradshaw was re-elected as chairman, with Peter Murphy as vice-chairman, after three years as secretary Deirdre Costello stepped down, with Sherice Verdon elected to fill the role of secretary, Michael Turley will resume his role as assistant treasurer and Lisa Regan was elected PRO for the year.
In his summary of 2012, Mr Bradshaw noted the achievements of the Galway senior hurling team on the field and commended the team and the back room staff for their efforts.
He also noted the work by the GHSC committee in raising the profile of the team and engaging the wider public through structured offline and online campaigns. The development of the GHSC supporters bus in 2012 under the guidance of Tom Connell and Joe Sherry, has resulted in at least one bus of support at every Galway game.
“The GHSC has a number of scheduled events planned for the coming months, these events are hoped to raise money and also to raise the profile of hurling in Galway.
“We are delighted again to be supported by Aer Lingus and through this backing we are able to give another level of support to our hurling team. We are asking everyone to become a member of the GHSC and to get behind the Galway hurling team,” said Mr Bradshaw.
