*Tom Conway. 

Inagh native, Tom Conway has unanimously been elected as the Chairperson of the Clare Association in Dublin (Muintir an Chláir).

Conway will lead the association for the coming year after getting the backing of members at its AGM at the Clasac Comhaltas Ceoltoírí Centre, Clontarf.

He succeeds Gerry O’ Reilly who stepped down after a very successful term as the association’s chairman. The new chairman and long standing association officer, Liam O’ Looney, also from Inagh, were among those who paid tribute to Mr. O’Reilly for his efforts and wonderful work on behalf of the association.

In 2016, Tom retired from An Garda Síochána where he was Chief Superintendent after forty one years of service,, the majority of which was in Dublin. He has appealed for more Clare natives or persons with Clare connections who are living in and around Dublin to join or support the association. He said that they would especially welcome younger members with new ideas to join them.
