Cooraclare’s Tadhg Murphy is the new president of Clare GAA. At the May meeting of the board at the West County hotel in Ennis on Tuesday night, he was unanimously elected to the position in succession to the late Henry Nealon from Michael Cusack’s.
Proposing Mr Murphy for the position, chairman, Michael McDonagh told the delegates that “at the time Hendi Nealon was elected there was one other candidate for the position, Tadhg Murphy who stood down in favour of the Michael Cusack’s man.
Cooraclare’s PJ McGuane formally seconded the proposal and told the meeting that “Tadhg has a great record. He played for the county at all grades and served as a selector for many years. He is the most successful captain our club ever had”.Visit Site
