Declan Buggy_Appointment (2)

Declan Buggy has been appointed to the role of Lead Hurling GDA within the Laois GAA Games Development Team.

Declan brings to the role a great interest in hurling, coming from a long family tradition across the border in Castlecomer, Co Kilkenny.

He also has a number of years of experience having been a highly regarded hurling focused GPO within an equivalent role working with Wexford GAA.

Declan is very much looking forward to the task ahead in Laois in leading the development of hurling in conjunction with clubs across the County.

Games Manager Mike Henchy and GDA’s Conor Shannon and Jason Coffey have finished in their Coaching and Games positions with Laois GAA to take up other job opportunities

In the interim James Devane will be acting Games Manager for Laois GAA and also supervising our GPO’s in their various clubs.

It is anticipated that this role will be advertised by Leinster GAA in the coming week.

Donie Brennan will continue in his role as lead Football GDA and the newly appointed Declan Buggy will assume the role of lead Hurling GDA.

It is hoped to appoint a Performance GDA in coming weeks, who will liaise with our Head of Athletic Development Tom Hargroves in delivering Athlete Development to both our Football and Hurling Academies and Minor panels.

In the meantime, Tom will continue to oversee this programme with the support of GPO personnel and S&C coaches with other Intercounty panels.

A number of clubs are also awaiting deployment of Games Promotion Officers (GPO’s) to their respective clubs.

These positions are now being advertised on Leinster GAA website with candidates interested in the role to apply by sending an up-to-date cover letter and Curriculum Vitae to info.leinster@gaa.ie on or before midnight Sunday, March 19.
