Statement regarding departure of Denis O’Connor

Denis had advised the Club of his intention to resign some days ago and we respect his decision .

We thank Denis for the immense work and effort he has put into the Club over the past three years. In 2014 the Club was close to extinction and would have collapsed without his intervention. He gave 100% dedication to save it and for the past three seasons he has given up a tremendous amount of time and energy for the good of the Club and football.

People have no idea of the amount of personal and family time, effort and resources Denis put in for the benefit of the Club, for which the Club is and should be grateful.

l will be acting as interim Chairman for the immediate future.

Gerry Mulvey
