AUDIO: Longford County Board Chairperson Brendan Gilmore believes Cashel’s Martin Skelly can get over the line in his bid to become GAA President

Longford GAA County Board Chairperson Brendan Gilmore believes that Cashel clubman and former Leinster Council Chairperson can become the 39th Uachtarán of Chumann Lúthchleas Gael.

Mr Gilmore told the large crowd at the launch of Martin Skelly’s election campaign last Thursday evening, November 3, “Martin has done an awful lot of work. He has been all over the world. He has that knack of getting a vote. I know that he was saying oh that he will be close and I know Martin will be across the line, even as he did in Leinster, by that one vote.”

Cashel club organised, Oíche na gClub, to coincide with the launch of Martin Skelly’s campaign for election and the function,at The Pier Inn, Lisnacusha, Lanesboro featured entertainment by Drumlish country music star Declan Nerney and his band.

Mr Gilmore also recalled how Declan Nerney played at his wedding and suggested that if Martin Skelly is successful in the contest for GAA-President elect at next February’s annual Congress in Croke Park that Declan could play for two nights to mark the celebrations.
