Former Kilkenny chairman Ned Quinn has begun his new role in the GAA.
The former Kilkenny chairman has been appointed chairman of the Central Competitions Control Committee.
Quinn was appointed in the role by new GAA President John Horan and he has already begun the role which is one of the most high-powered within the GAA.
This is the committee that oversees the scheduling of fixtures of both inter county hurling and football matches as well as appointing referees to these fixtures.
It also deals with disciplinary matters that may need to be addressed and Quinn told the Kilkenny People that he wasn't going to turn down the role when asked.
"When the President asks you to do something, unless you can't do it, then you take it on. That would be my approach," stated Quinn.
