By John Keogh Limerick Leader Sport

PATRICKSWELL’S Paul Foley has been appointed to a newly formed nominations committee where he will work closely with incoming GAA President Jarlath Burns.

Foley, who has been Limerick’s Central Council delegate to Croke Park since 2019, replacing the late Denis Holmes in the prestigious role.

The Patrickswell clubman was nominated to be on the new committee by GAA Ard Stiúrthóir Tom Ryan at last week’s central council meeting and his participation was ratified then.

The trio will form the nominations committee which will oversee the process of national appointments in Croke Park. Foley is a lifelong member of his beloved Patrickswell and has served the club as a player, mentor, coach and chairman.

He will be combing this new role with his position as Limerick GAA’s Central Council delegate.

Foley’s appointment to the new incoming committee was confirmed at Monday evening’s Limerick GAA County Convention by chairman Seamus McNamara.
