Seán Walsh moves another step up the ladder of the GAA. At a recent meeting of the Munster Council, held in Listowel Arms Hotel, Seán took over from Jimmy O’Gorman as Chairman of the Munster Council. Seán, who was formerly Chairman of the Kerry County Board, had been Vice Chairman of the Council for the past three years. A very capable man, Seán has never forgotten where he came from and has always been there for the locals in their hour of need, particularly before All Ireland Finals and such events. Congratulations Sean, Moyvane will support you all the way to the top.
