COACHING Officer Joe Quaid has stepped down from his role on Limerick GAA’s County Board.

The former Limerick All Star goalkeeper has served three years in the role.

This week it was confirmed that the Murroe-Boher clubman will not continue in his role after Annual Convention on December 15.

However, Quaid’s successor will not be elected at convention as the deadline for nominations has passed.

Therefore a special convention will take place in January to fill the role.

“I simply don’t have the time anymore,” Joe Quaid told LeaderSport this Wednesday afternoon.

“The kids are bigger now and it’s impossible to donate the required time to everything.”

He paid tribute to Noel Hartigan and his team of GDA’s, who Quaid worked closely with.

“They do fabulous work and it often goes unnoticed,” said the out-going County Board officer.

Limerick GAA chairman Oliver Mann has thanked Quaid for his contribution.

“He said that time constraints with work and a young family mean he has to step down. On behalf of the board, I would like to thank Joe for his contribution over the three year,” said the chairman.

“Hopefully when he has more time, Joe will come back and play a role in Limerick GAA.”

As well as his Coaching Officer role, Quaid was Limerick camogie manager this season and led his side to the All-Ireland intermediate final in Croke Park.

It is understood that his position as manager is on the agenda for the upcoming camogie AGM.
