This year’s Mayo GAA annual convention took place today at the McWilliam Park Hotel in Claremorris. By the sounds of it, today’s event was a fairly low-key affair. Mayo GAA provided details via Twitter on how the various motions that were up for debate fared out. Those interested can check out the Mayo GAA Twitter account here.
The only executive spot up for grabs at today’s convention was that of Honorary Secretary, with Dermot Butler stepping down after five years in the role – his final annual report is here. Outgoing Assistant Secretary Ronan Kirrane from Davitts was elected to succeed Dermot Butler, beating off the challenge of Mary Prenty (Ballyhaunis) in the vote.
In other votes, former PRO Paul Cunnane was re-elected onto Connacht Council while former County Board Chairman Liam Moffat was elected to the provincial body for the first time. Another former Chairman, Paddy McNicholas, was re-elected to Central Council, while Brian O’Malley was elected to the post of Assistant Secretary.
The Mayo GAA accounts for the year to end-September 2022 were also presented to this afternoon’s Convention. There’s no link available for the annual accounts presented by Honorary Treasurer Valerie Murphy but this report by Mike Finnerty in the Mayo News provides the main details, including the headline figure that a surplus of €1.1m was recorded for the latest financial year.
Oisín McGovern has a round-up of the main events at today’s Convention in the Mayo News – that’s here.
