FORMER Donegal senior ladies manager Micheál Naughton is one of three candidates bidding to become the new LGFA President.
Delegates attending this weekend’s Ladies Gaelic Football Association Annual Congress at the Lough Rea Hotel, Galway, will vote on their preferred candidate.
Three candidates are vying to take over from current President Marie Hickey in 2021, and the winner of the vote will then serve a four-year term.
Naughton is up against Liam McDonagh, a fellow Sligo native, and Dubliner Dominic Leech.
The successful candidate will become the 13th different President of the LGFA since its inception in 1974.
Naughton has been based in Donegal for 22 years now.
He is a former Donegal and Ulster Council Chairman who also managed the Donegal Ladies Senior Football team.
Affiliated to the Four Masters club, Naughton guided Donegal to the 2010 TG4 All-Ireland Intermediate crown during her first stint in charge, before returning to preside over a 2016 Lidl National League Division 2 title win.
Delegates attending the Lough Rea Hotel will hear from all three Presidential hopefuls on Saturday afternoon, before the votes will be cast, and the President-elect revealed.
The LGFA’s 2020 Annual Congress gets underway on Friday evening, and is expected to conclude on Saturday evening.Tags:
