A member of Davy Fitzgerald’s current Wexford Senior hurling squad has been appointed secretary of the Gaelic Players Association…
Current Wexford Senior hurling joint-captain Matthew O’Hanlon has taken up the role of Secretary.
The role was vacant after Mayo footballer Tom Parsons was announced as Chairman of the Association following the news that Limerick’s Seamus Hickey stepped down.
“Matt has been a respected voice on the NEC during his time involved, and those leadership qualities will stand him in good stead in his new position,” the GPA statement read.
In a media release, O’Hanlon commented on how he hopes to represent the voice of inter-county players and thanked them for entrusting him with the new role:
“It’s a privilege to have been entrusted with the position of GPA Secretary by my fellow players. I look forward to working closely with our new Chairman and all the team as we continue to represent the voice of inter-county players, support their development and protect their welfare,” O’Hanlon said.
Marking the announcement, current GPA CEO and former Dublin footballer Paul Flynn, said:
“I want to congratulate Tom and Matt on their appointments as Chairman and Secretary respectively. They are both hugely respected by all within the GAA community and have been highly influential in their roles on the NEC to date. I look forward to working alongside both and wish them well in their new positions.
The very best of luck to Matt in his new role.
