PRO Bob Doheny (St Kevin’s), Central Council Delegate Paddy McMahon (Sean O’Mahony’s) and Children’s Officer Stephen O’Connor (St Patrick’s) will also stay in place.

Stephen O’Brien of Pearse Og was elected the Irish Language/Cultural Officer with Dreadnots clubman Paul Aspell announced as the new Coaching Officer.
