Secretary's Report 1987

We have come once again to the end of another successful year at Munster Council.  Things ran pretty smoothly in Munster this year despite of the fact that there was no secretary elected to the Council and the resignation of the assistant secretary and Treasurer, James Lafferty during the year.  This would not have been possible but for the co-operation of all counties in providing pitches and referees, sometimes at very short notice.

The winners in Munster were as follows:

Under 16:      Clare
Under 18:      Cork
Junior:         Cork
Senior:         Kerry
Post primary Schools:   Spanish Point, Clare
Club:         Ballymacarbry, Waterford

Munster were once again victorious in the inter-provincial championship even though the attendance of the trials was not all it should have been.

I would like to thank Margaret Lawlor for organising the school's competition and Hannie Lordan for all the work she has put into this Council in the past year.
