New Board for next year

(Oldest Posts First)

Seems to be very quiet on here about direction New York will be taking. McCarthy has to step down but who will be taking over as chairman. Word is O'Sullivan but also that he will not get in without a fight. Who else is there?? Dooley, Birmingham, Fitzpatrick, McGrath? Who would win and also what is the status on taking over the lease. Does anyone know?

The names of a number of possible candidates are now starting to emerge. For the chairmans job; B. O'Sullivan, Dooley, Bermingham. Vice do; McGrath, Fahy. Sect; Henchy and Collins. Dooley and Bermingham have had the position before. Think Collins has retired from active involvement and is pushing up there in years.

Hope the clubs choose all officers wisely this time round. NY Board faces a massive bill of close to $250,000 ( this figure is correct.....a quarter of a million dollars) each year starting January on the pitch and rent on the bar property. See only three of the ten offices are being contested. Perhaps the new assistant secretary would have been a better choice for one of the higher positions. However I expect that this will once more be a popularity contest with comments like, he-she deserves a shot, has been around a long time, is a great worker, mowed my lawn during the summer, heard in the locals on mclean ave.

Does this mean that the GAA now have the lease? Can anyone answer the question and if so how long is it for? Can't see that as being an accurate figure.
Word over the weekend was that Bermingham, Fahy and Henchy would get elected.

Seems like these are important times for NY gaa, I hope all these candidates get interviewed by all major newspapers soon with the tough questions in hand. Would like to hear thir view also on underage football in NY. One candidate might have a problem there since he really never see's a game.The new club house or whatever there going to build, think all GAA supporters need to have imput there since there the ones maybe with the better ideas and after all will be paying the price.
