Conlon Interim CEO at Camogie

The Camogie Association has moved to appoint Louise Conlon as Interim Chief Executive following the departure from the role of Joan O’Flynn after this year’s Congress.

Conlon joined the Association as Technical Development and Participation Manager from the Defence Forces earlier this year. While there she held a number of management and leadership roles and most recently had served as Aide-de-Camp to the President of Ireland.

The Kildare native studied Business at Galway-Mayo Institute of technology and joined the Defence Forces from college. While there she founded the Camogie and Ladies Football clubs for serving members and represented Kildare at inter-county level and as a team mentor. She is also a former Camogie Chairperson of Clane GAA Club.

Conlon took up the position of CEO on an interim basis this week and will remain in place until such time as a permanent appointment is made.

Experienced media and CSR consultant Sheena Horgan is covering commercial affairs at the Association this year as well, providing maternity leave cover for Mary O’Toole.

Kathleen Woods started her term as President following on as well from this year’s Congress.

The Association recieved confirmation last week that RTÉ would be covering the Quarter Finals, Semi-Finals and Final live in this year’s All Ireland Senior Camogie Championship.
