The original founders and movers of the branch were the late Ted Flynn, Sadie Leonard and Liz Egan who became Chair, Vice Chair & Secretary respectively at the first minuted meeting in November 2000. As funds were very limited they appealed for a contribution from Tullamore Branch INTO with Virginia Duffy approaching Birr/Banagher Branch. £300 and £100 were kindly donated and much appreciated.
These original organisers were very committed and the membership expanded quickly and has now exceeded 150.
Ted remained as Chairman until 2008 and Liz continued as Secretary until 2011. Sadie served as Chair for 3 years.
