THE 2016 Donegal GAA Convention appears set to be a straightforward affair – at least in terms of the election of the County Executive.
There will be just one contest for positions at the top table – for the two Ulster Council Delegate posts.
Pat Connaghan has completed his term, meaning there will be a new face elected there.
PJ McGowan, the other incumbent, will be running again, as will, it seems, Pat Walsh (Bundoran), Liam McElhinney (St. Michael’s), Mick McGrath (Aodh Ruadh), David Kelch (N Conaill), Brendan Kelly (Convoy), Grace Boyle (Termon) and Denis Ellis (N Columba).[adrotate group=”53″]
It is not certain that all of them will leave their hats in the ring when the votes are being asked for this afternoon at the Abbey Hotel, Donegal town.
County Chairman Sean Dunnion (pictured) has a free run for a fifth and final year in the top seat, while Frankie Doherty (Vice Chairman), Aideen Gillen (Secretary), Declan Martin (Assistant Secretary), Cieran Kelly (Treasurer), Paddy Tinney (Assistant Treasurer), Ed Byrne (PRO), Seamus Ó Domhnaill (Central Council Delegate) David McLoone (Development Officer) and Fergus Mac Aoidh (Oifigeach Gaeilge agus Cultúir) will all retain their portfolios without opposition.
Anthony Harkin has served his time in the Coaching Officer’s role and Connaghan’s time as one of the Ulster Council delegates is also up.
St Mary’s Convoy clubman Conor McDermott will be the new Coaching Officer, taking over from Harkin in that role.[adrotate group=”81″] Tags:
