Outgoing County Secretary, Dave Cahill and outgoing PRO, Christine Murray, have completed their five year terms and must stand aside from those positions.
Cahill has been nominated unopposed for the position of PRO, a position he fulfilled so successfully with his club, Clane, while Murray, after her successful stint as PRO during which she was recognised by the Leinster Council, has been nominated for the position of County Secretary along with County Board Administrative Staff member, Martina Donnelly.
Development Officer, Petria Dobbins, was also nominated for the position of County Secretary but she withdrew her nomination overnight.
The County Convention will be held on Tuesday, 15 December at 7.30pm but because of Covid – 19 restrictions this year’s Convention will be held on-line.
At this month’s County Board meeting, County Chairman, Mick Gorman, advised that Croke Park had requested that no contentious motions be included in this year’s County Conventions but Kildare clubs have gone one better and have not forwarded any motions for consideration.
