Eamon Reilly has resigned from his position as Chairman of Longford county board with immediate effect.
Reilly had signalled he would not stand for re-election at the Longford county Convention on Thursday December 12, but has called time on his role early.
Vice-chairperson Brid McGoldrick from the Killoe Emmet Og club will take over as chair until the county GAA Convention next month.
In a statement Longford GAA said, ‘Longford GAA wish to inform that our Chairperson Eamon Reilly, who had previously expressed his intention to stand down at our upcoming Convention, has today (Saturday) forwarded his resignation to take effect immediately.’
‘Eamon has been a dedicated servant of Longford GAA for the past decade involving himself in our annual Golf Classic and Race Day fundraisers as well as holding the positions of Assistant Treasurer, Vice-Chairperson and latterly Chairperson for the past three years.
‘Longford GAA respect his decision and wish him all the best in the future.’
