As some of our members may be aware that there was a Motion at our AGM
to change the name of our club to CLG Naomh Muire, Íochtar Na Rosann,
or Naomh Muire GAA club, Lower Rosses. The reason is that the name
Naomh Mhuire is incorrect in the Irish Language. A debate took place
with some members saying that the our name should not be changed as it
has been in place for the last 30 years. Both sides argued their case
at the AGM, and a private ballot was taken on the motion. As the
motion means changing our Club Constitution a two third majority was
required in order for the motion to be carried. The result of the
ballot was For the Change 20 votes, Against the Change 6 votes. This
was above the required majority and after an Club Executive meeting in
January, we have notified County Committee of the change in our name.
Officially as of now our club is to be known as CLG Naomh Muire,
Íochtar Na Rosann, with English version as Naomh Muire GAA Club, Lower
Rosses. Our address is Mullach Dearg, Cionn Caslach, Leitir Ceannain,
Co Dhún Na nGall.
We as members can continue to wear our old crested Club Colours with
pride and any change to club crest will be phased in when new Jerseys
or leisure wear is required.
