Limerick GAA's Central Council delegate Rory Kiely
LIMERICK’S longest serving County Board officer is to be challenged for his position at Annual Convention.

LIMERICK’S longest serving County Board officer is to be challenged for his position at Annual Convention.

The deadline for nominations closed this week and all County Board officers have been returned unopposed, except for Rory Kiely.

The Central Council delegate is to be opposed by Claughaun’s Mikey Graham.

Feenagh-Kilmeedy’s Rory Kiely is the longest serving member of the County Board with almost 50 years service at the top table of Limerick GAA.

Kiely was Limerick GAA chairman from 1969 to 1981.

As well as chairman, he has also served as vice-chairman and Munster Council delegate.

He has served as Central Council delegate for the past number of years.

The Limerick Convention will take place on Sunday December 15.

It was due to take place at an East Limerick venue but it appears no club in that division has opted to host the annual gathering and therefore the County Board executive are to appoint a venue.

Last year the Convention was held in The Strand Hotel and could very well return to the City centre venue.
