I’m just seven weeks into my Presidency and it has been wonderfully hectic!

I’ve presented cups for eight national titles, visited 16 schools in Laois and Offaly as part of the promotion of the 39th Feile na nGael, visited two County Boards, established 10 new National Committees and attended the GAA Congress in Cork.

Congratulations to all the winners of the National League titles Divisions 1-5, to the All Ireland under 16A, B and C winners and to Munster and Connacnt, Senior and Junior Gael Linn Inter Provincial winners.

Special congratulations to Wexford and Wicklow. Wexford successfully captured the Division 1 and Division 2 titles and a couple of weeks later the All Ireland u16B cup. Three titles for the purple and gold and it’s still only May! Wicklow had their day when they won the Division 5 title for the first time against a gallant Monaghan. Bray Emmets GAA were excellent hosts for this competition, hosted as a one day blitz.

Keep the 19th -21st June free for the 39th Feile na nGael and come out and support the parade in Birr on the evening of the 19th June.   Almost 70 schools received visits last week. Camogie was well represented with players from Offaly, Laois, Wexford, Cork, Galway and Clare available to talk with school children and teachers.

Over the next few months I plan to visit each Camogie County Board to listen to the issues, concerns and aspirations at local level. I’ve already visited Cork and Galway Boards. These provided good discussion on a range of topics including media coverage of camogie, rules governing transfers and the need for neutral umpires and lines people at inter county games.
