Hogan will not contest presidency

Published 08/02/2011

Con Hogan has decided not to contest the presidency of the GAA.

Hogan said in a statement issued through the Tipperary county board that he felt other candidates were in a better position to take the post at GAA Congress in Mullingar in April.

"The presence of candidates with a stronger provincial and geographic support base than my own, coupled with the fact that the current President is from Munster would make it very difficult for me to achieve the necessary support and accordingly I have decided not to contest the election," said Hogan.

The remaining candidates are Donegal's Tom Daly, Liam O'Neill of Laois and Seamus Howlin of Wexford.
