Laois GAA County Board chairman Peter O’Neill has announced that he has appointed a new Juvenile chairman.
Barrowhouse native Alan Langton has been given the role left vacant following the decision of long serving Danny Gorman to step down at the end of this year.
Clough-Ballacolla native Gorman has held the role of Juvenile chairman for the last three years and was secretary for three years before that.
He has been on the County Board in a variety of different roles for the last 17 years and chairman O’Neill confirmed that Danny would be remaining involved.
He said: “I want to first pay tribute to outgoing chairman Danny Gorman for all the hard work he has done for the good of the juveniles is Laois.
“Danny has been a brilliant servant and has carried out this very important role excellent for the last number of years.
“All in all, Danny has been involved with Laois GAA for the last 17 years and he will remain part of the County Board in a different capacity.”
Gorman’s successor is former Football Board vice-chairman Alan Langton – and O’Neill says he will be very capable in the new role.
Peter said: “And I want to welcome Alan Langton to the fold as the new chairman.
“He is a previous member of the executive and a very progressive and hard working individual.
“He has big shoes to fill but I have no doubt he will go about his work diligently.”
