A huge crowd was in attendance on Thursday night at the Convention for the newly created Junior Board, which replaces the Northern and Southern Boards. The only item on the agenda was the election of officers.
The position of Chairperson was a contest between John Lacey (St Patrick’s) and Dan Kenny (Piltown), John Lacey won what was a very tight contest by one vote to be elected Chairperson.
The position of PRO was also contested on the night. Pat Dunphy (Carrigeen) and John Stapleton (John Lockes) were the two candidates to contest this vote, with Pat Dunphy winning the contest on this occasion.
The positions of Secretary and Treasurer went uncontested and Ned Buggy (Dicksboro) was elected Secretary and Paul Kavanagh (Emeralds) was elected to the position of Treasurer.
