From Tipperary GAA Scene
The Annual Convention of Munster Council will take place on Friday night next March 5th in Listowel. We wish former Chairman of Tipperary County Board and current Central Council Representative, John Costigan of JK Brackens every success in his quest to become Vice Chairman of the Council. The other contestant for this position is former Chairman of Clare County Board, Robert Frost. Michael Power (outgoing) of Newcastle will be returned as Treasurer and we wish him all the best for the coming year. John Ryan (Holycross-Ballycahill) will retire as a Tipperary delegate to Munster Council having completed a 5 year term. John has made a great contribution to the council particularly in relation to grounds development, an area in which has demonstrated expertise for many years in Tipperary and beyond. We thank John for representing the county with such distinction and look forward to him continuing to contribute to the GAA in Tipperary in other ways. He will be replaced by PJ Maher of Boherlahan Dualla who was elected at the Tipperary County Convention in December 09. Donal Shanahan  (Toomevara) will continue as the other Tipperary delegate to the Council. Jimmy O’Gorman (Waterford) will retire as Chairman at the Convention having completed his 3 year term. The GAA 125 celebrations last year were among the highlights of Jimmy’s term and we congratulate him on a successful 3 years carried out at all times in a friendly and courteous manner. He will be succeeded by Sean Walsh of Kerry to whom we wish every success for his term.
