Mícheál Naughton elected new LGFA President


Sligo's Mícheál Naughton is the new president of the Ladies Gaelic Football Association.

The Donegal-based hotelier and businessman succeeds Marie Hickey, who had been at the helm for the last six years.

Naughton is also a former manager of the Donegal ladies football team and was previously Ulster chairman.

 “I will always do my utmost to continue the good work that has already been done," he said at today's virtual annual Congress.

"I will continue to champion one of the fastest growing female sports in Europe.

"We're not the finished article but we've built an Association that we should be very proud of.

"We need to focus on our biggest asset - our players. In my term as President, I would love to see Croke Park at full capacity for All-Ireland Final Day.

"Looking forward to the next four years, I want to continue on the great work and collaboration with the GAA and Camogie Association. I want to forge greater links and bonds.”

In her final speech as President, Marie Hickey said: "Our links with the GAA and Camogie Association have never been stronger at national level. This will continue to improve as we work towards a federal system of governance.

“This is a time for great reflection – it has been an incredible journey.”
