Camogie trio relieved of roles

Dean Goodison

Wexford are back looking for a handful of new Camogie County Board officers after an E.G.M. last week saw three occupants relieved of their duties.

The meeting was called by clubs after Ailish Whitty resigned from the post of Secretary after internal squabbles, stating that the situation made her position 'unworkable'.

An initial ballot by the club representatives for a vote of no confidence in the executive as a whole was passed, and the reps. then set about voting on each individual's position on the board. The meeting lasted until after midnight.

Three votes of no confidence came back while the remainder of the board kept their positions.

All three relieved of their duties were only received as new members last December.

Kevin Molloy from Naomh Eanna, who replaced long-serving Rose Breen as Treasurer, is no longer in situ. Assistant Secretary Stephanie Curtis (Clongeen) is also gone, as is her father and county P.R.O., Eamonn Curtis.

In an e-mail sent to clubs Curtis stated that: 'I am disappointed to find myself in this position and I thank you all for your support and cooperation in the past'.

It is unclear if Whitty will look to return as Secretary following the developments at the Extraordinary General Meeting.

Clubs will now be approached to put names forward to fill the vacant slots. It's likely to be a difficult task with the turmoil making the positions far from appealing.
