Many congratulations to Belgium GAA stalwart Willie Cashin, who last weekend in Madrid was elected Chairman of the European County Board (ECB).
Willie, a dedicated hurler as well as this year’s all-conquering ladies football coach, is a GAA man through and through, and the club is enormously proud to have one of our own in such an important position as we approach 2010.
Willie was elected thanks in no small part to the hard work and tireless lobbying of the Belgium GAA delegation at the ECB AGM which took place in Madrid, Spain on 5-6 December. Club chair Olof Gill, vice-chair Kevin Keary, secretary Becky Mattes and Spanish Ambassador Anay Rios went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure the “Tipp Lip” landed the big job.
Congratulations also to our other club members who won positions on the 2010 County Board:
Dave Barrett: Games Development/ Coaching Officer
Kevin Keary: Club Development Officer
Becky Mattes: Camogie Officer
With such a wealth of talent and experience between them, Barrett, Cashin, Keary and Mattes will do their best to ensure that Belgium GAA’s player interests are represented at the top level, and will work hard to improve GAA on the continent as a whole.
Comhgháirdeas a chairde, agus Nollaig Shona Dhíobh go léir. Happy Xmas everyone, and see you in 2010.
The Belgium GAA Committee
