Bishop Willie Walsh Set To Be Named Next Clare GAA President

A former Clare bishop looks set to be named as the next president of Clare GAA.

Bishop Emeritus of Killaloe Willie Walsh is the sole nominee for the position, with nominations now closed.

The Tipperary native joined the staff of St. Flannan’s College 60 years ago and led the school to five Dr Harty Cup and Dr Croke Cup titles between 1976 and 1987, while also leading Éire Óg to Clare Senior Hurling Championship glory in 1990.

Reflecting on his long involvement in Clare GAA, Bishop Walsh says the enduring friendships he’s made have been the highlight.
