CRATLOE’s Joe O’Donnell is continuing as chairman of Clare camogie in a caretaker capacity until a replacement is found.

When it came to the election of officers at this week’s convention at Hotel Woodstock, he was the only nominee for the position. Informing the delegates that he had completed his five-year term he agreed to continue in the role in a caretaker capacity.

The board’s registrar Kevin Walsh explained that he wasn’t a candidate as he had only come on the executive last year and was “learning the ropes”.

He proposed that the chairman’s term had included “two years of non-activity due to Covid and it would not be breaking the rules for him to continue in the position”.

Stating that “people staying in a position for too long is bad news”, the chairman agreed to continue in the position in a caretaker capacity until someone is found.

The board is also looking for a vice chairman as there were no nominees for the position at this week’s meeting.
