The County Board has announced tonight that County Secretary Kevin O’Toole has decided to step down from the position, due to family and work commitments. The full text of tonight’s County Board statement is available here.
As the driving force behind the significant work that’s been undertaken over the past year and a bit to stabilise the financial position of Mayo GAA – including the establishment of the highly successful Cairde Mhaigheo initiative – Kevin’s track record in his short period as County Secretary is an impressive one. It’s a real pity that he’s not in a position to continue this work but, equally, it’s wholly understandable why he has taken the decision to resign at this point in time.
In its statement tonight, the County Board says that it wishes Kevin and his family well and that it hopes to see him back in some capacity in the future. Hear, hear, I say as, I’m sure, will many other Mayo supporters.
