O’Donnell Returned To Clare Camogie Chair But Secretary Position Remains Vacant

Cratloe’s Joe O’Donnell was re-elected as chairman but Clare camogie are seeking a new secretary following last night’s Annual Convention.

Clare FM’s Darren Kelly reports from Hotel Woodstock.



In his address, Joe O’Donnell described his first year as a rewarding experience before being returned unopposed along with Treasurer Martin Kaiser and PRO Brid McNamara.

But the positions vacated by secretary Marie-Louise Kaiser and vice-chairman Joe Robbins remained unfilled leaving clubs to nominate again for January’s monthly meeting.

Debates on championship structures, including a proposal to increase the number of senior teams to 10, were among many matters referred to the Fixtures Committee.

The big story was the introduction of an annual levy of €12 for adult members and €6 for underage players.

This will replace existing levies and Church Gate Collections, and proceeds raised will go towards the development of the county’s official ground in Fr. McNamara Park.

After a four-hour meeting, O’Donnell concluded proceedings as Clare camogie brought the curtain down on 2019.
