he 84th convention of the West G.A.A. Board will take place in the Clonoulty G.A.A. Centre on this Friday. December 14, at 8 pm.
This is the first time for the convention to be hosted by Clonoulty-Rossmore Club and it will be an occasion for the club to show off their very fine facilities, the construction of which commenced in 2009 on the occasion of the 125th anniversary of the foundation of the G.A.A.
The convention will see the election of a new chairman with the outgoing, Roger Kennedy, standing down after his three years in office. Tom English of Eire Óg is the automatic choice as his replacement as he is the only nomination for the position. As a result the convention will lack the excitement that a contest brings to the meeting. See this weeks Tipperary Star for full story.
