A changing of the guard took place last night at the San Francisco GAA AGM. Completing five years as the Western Board Chairman, Bertie Penny's term has come to an end. After a very successful 2017 National Championship hosted on Treasure Island and also spearheading the improvement of the financial accounts. Bertie and the board can be assured of a very positive return to SFGAA. Although he may have termed out as Chairman of the Board, he has graciously taken up the position as Board Treasurer. Liam Moloney has moved from Board Treasurer and has accepted the nomination to be the new Chairman of the Western Divisional Board. He was joined by Terry Tracey of the Ulster club as returning Vice-Chairman. Neal Fitzgerald also with the Ulster club has accepted the position of Board Secretary and who replaces outgoing Secretary Paul Keane. Paul graciously declined the nomination to continue as Board Secretary, but will still be busy within the GAA circles as he continues as Secretary of USGAA. Six out of the seven Board positions have been filled, as we await the appointment of a Recording Secretary. Ashling Bryant has stepped down as Recording Secretary after a mammoth ten year involvement with the Board. Ashling has been instrumental in the development and success of the Board. Her input and involvement on the Board will be missed.

2018 Western Divisional Board:
Chairman: Liam Moloney - Sean Treacys GFC.
Vice-Chairman: Terry Tracey Ulster GFC.
Corresponding Secretary: Neal FitzGerald – Ulster GFC.
Recording Secretary: Vacant.
Treasurer: Bertie Penny - Fog City Harps LGFC.
Registrar: Eoin O’Keeffe - St. Joseph's HC.
PRO: Mike Nash - Eire Og GFC.
Youth Officer - James Quinn - SFYGAA.

We also welcomed our new Games Development Administrator Rory McKillion of the Ulster GFC. We wish him every success as he takes over from Danielle Downey - Fog City GFC/Cu Chulainns CC. Danielle had a very successful two years with SFGAA, with some of her highlights being; 2016 National Senior Football Champions with Fog City Harps. In 2017 coaching the North American County U18 Ladies to victory over New York and the Cu Chulainns 2017 National Junior and Intermediate titles.

We wish to sincerely thank our outgoing Board officers Paul Keane and Ashling Bryant. We wish our new Board every success in 2018.
