High profile GAA role for Longford's Gerry Hagan

Killoe Emmet Óg club chairperson Gerry Hagan has been appointed to the GAA's powerful Central Hearings committee

Killoe Emmet Óg club chairperson Gerry Hagan has been appointed to the GAA's powerful Central Hearings committee.

His appointment was approved by the GAA's An Coiste Bainistíochta/Ard Chomhairle on Saturday evening following an historic National Congress held via Zoom.  

Cork native Larry McCarthy, a member of the Sligo football club in New York and who has served with New York GAA in a number of capacities, including secretary, chairman and Central Council delegate, officially took over the reins as GAA President from Dublin's John Horan.

Gerry Hagan, a Fine Gael county councillor, is an experienced GAA administrator but last December he suffered the disappointment of losing to James Clarke (Clonguish) in a head-to-head vote for the role of Longford GAA's Central Council representative. Hagan had completed two years of a possible five-year term. 

Prior to his two years as Central Council representative, Hagan served in various roles on the Longford GAA Management Committee including PRO, Irish Language & Culture Officer and Leinster Council representative.
