GAA : Con Hogan decides NOT to stand for Presidency of GAA

Updated: February 8, 2011

Statement re Presidency of GAA from Con Hogan, Tipperary:

On receipt of the nomination for the position of Uachtarán Chumann Luthchleas Gael from Tipperary, I undertook to assess the situation and make a final decision on my candidature in the spring, well in advance of the election at Congress.

The presence of candidates with a stronger provincial and geographic support base than my own coupled with the fact that the current President is from Munster would make it very difficult for me to achieve the necessary support and accordingly I have decided not to contest the election.

I would like to wish the remaining candidates well; whoever is successful will make an excellent president and can be assured of my total support in my remaining period as a Trustee of the Association and into the future.
