Galway Rural Development held their AGM last month and would like to announce the appointment of Anne Kinsella of Teagasc as Chairperson. An economist and a chartered certified accountant, Ms Kinsella has been a director of GRD for three years. Cllr Peter Roche, who contributes to several community groups, has been appointed as Vice-Chair. Warm tributes were given to the contributions of Helen Murphy and Padraic Divilly who are stepping down after decades of excellent service, and to former CEO Delia Colohan.
