Cooley Kickhams clubman Liam O’Neill was returned as chairman for a second year in the position, while outgoing secretary, Angela O’Neill, was also ratified for a second year in her role.

In his address to clubs, Mr O’Neill complimented the All-Ireland winning Louth U16 and adult teams, and thanked their respective managements, led by Martin Duffy and Darren Bishop respectively.

The chairman referred to the strong club season in which, he said, the standard of play in both the League and Championship finals was of an extremely high standard.

All sponsors, including Defy, Dundalk Credit Union, Blackstone Motors and Lenra Construction, were thanked for their efforts during the year, as were members of all the county committees.
