Anthony Curran of Ballymacelligott will take on the role of Treasurer. Joe O’Flaherty of Finuge/St Senans will continue in his role as Registrar as will Donal O’Doherty of Spa as Development Officer.
There was also a Fixtures Committee elected and the posts were taken by Batt McGlynn of Fossa, Donal O’Doherty of Spa, Selina Looney of Killarney Legion and Patrick White of Ballymacelligott.
Karen McGlynn of Fossa and Billy Mangan of Castleisland Desmonds will act as Munster Council Delegates. There are still a number of roles to be filled including PRO, Cultural Officer and Child Protection Officer.
In his opening address, new Chairman Mike Moriarity said that he hopes that clubs can now pull together for the sake of all the progress that has been made over the last number of years on the playing fields. Inter club rivalry should be put to one side, he said, and clubs have to stand as one to represent all that is good in Kerry Ladies football.
