There were five nominations for the Committee by the deadline of Thursday 1st May.
Four Committee members were re-nominated: Michael Cecil, Patricia McCurdy, Tom McDonnell and John McQuilkin (who had been co-opted since the last AGM). Ciaran McCurdy was nominated as a new member. In addition, Noel McCurdy has announced that he will be stepping down from the Committee at the AGM. This means that there are now five vacancies, and as there are no more than five nominations an election will not be necessary.
There was a huge pile of various types of certificates to give out to Rathlin residents on Monday afternoon, when there was an event organised to recognise the many and varied ways in which members of the island community contribute to island life and further their own qualifications and experience.
