Dicksboro GAA and Camogie Club have agreed to merge under “Croke Park One Club” guidelines.
Following the club’s EGM which was held yesterday (12th July), the decision to formally merge Dicksboro GAA and Camogie Club was ratified last night at meetings in Palmerstown.
There was a very strong vote of 99% in favour of the merger which means that the club will be run by a joined-up executive committee with representatives from the camogie club now joining the new “One Club Executive”.
In a statement, the club said “We have been working closely together as two clubs under two different codes of GAA and Camogie for many years, this new one club approach will further enhance the collaboration of all of our efforts and assist the club in growing and developing to the high ambitions which we set for ourselves”.
“We would like to thank those involved who have worked hard over the past 24 months to bring us to this point and we acknowledge all past and present members of both the GAA and Camogie Clubs who have assisted in bringing the club to our current point of 1000 members and growing”.
Meanwhile, the club also took the opportunity to modernise and change slightly the club crest and have reverted back to the original colours of the crest along with adding the new “One Club Title”.
