G. A.A. President Sean Kelly visits Tinryland G.F.C.
G.A.A. president Sean Kelly paid a visit to Tinryland G.F.C. on last Friday afternoon to discuss with the committee the implications for the club arising out of the proposed new Dublin to Waterford motorway. The Kerry born president spent almost one hour in the club where he was given a full briefing by the officers of their concerns relating to the proposed road development, which will have major implications for the future of Tinryland G.F.C. The president who was accompanied by Co. Board officers Eddie Byrne and Tommy O’Neill was welcomed to Tinryland by club chairman Brendan Hayden and by club development chairman Shay Byrne. Other Tinryland delegates who spoke to the president were Ned Deane, David Power, Cormac O’Toole, Joe Walshe, John Scott and Pat McArdle. Having viewed the parts of the club that will be affected by the new road the president assured the Tinryland officials that he will do all in his power to ensure a satisfactory outcome for Tinryland G.F.C. in the current negotiations with the NRA.
