Roddy Guiney has stepped down from his position as Chair of the Federation of Irish Sport.

One of the leading advisors in the business of sport and sponsorship over many years, Guiney has steered the Federation in a very positive direction during his term of office, doubling up while maintaining his position as Chair of Wilson Hartnell.

His place was taken at this week’s Annual General Meeting of the Federation by Clare McGrath from Water Safety Ireland.

Sinead McNulty, CEO of the Camogie Association has joined the Board for a three-year term representing Category A Members replacing rea Walshe of the FAI.

Category B Members will also have a new voice with Peter O’Brien of Special Olympics Ireland taking over the reins in that area from Harry Hermon of Sailing Ireland.

Fergal Carruth stays on representing Category C members as do Tom O’Mahony, Mary McMorrow and Maeve Buckley for their specialist knowledge in public affairs, corporate governance and commercial matters.

Enda Lynch’s position was also ratified at the AGM.

The AGM was held by Zoom. We will catch up with Roddy Guiney in the coming weeks to reflect upon his time in the Chair and wish Clare McGrath the best of luck in following in his footsteps.
