Presidents Address to the 63RD Annual Delegate Conference at the Malton Hotel, Killarney, on the 29th April 2010
Delegates firstly I would like to extend a warm welcome to you all at the conclusion of what has been an immensely challenging twelve months. I wish to pay tribute to the Lord Mayor of Killarney, Councillor Michael Gleeson for his entertaining and insightful speech this morning. As a Corkman I enjoy meeting Kerrymen in April, it’s towards the end of the summer that things aren’t quite so cordial. Or successful for that matter.
