Daly eyes GAA role

Former Ulster Council chairman Tom Daly is to run for the GAA presidency at next April's Congress.

His candidature was formally endorsed at the Donegal county convention.

The Donegal native, who has already been publicly supported by former GAA president Peter Quinn, was proposed by 1992 All-Ireland winner Sylvester Maguire and seconded by county chairman PJ McGowan.

Daly has been a member of the Ulster Council for 22 years, and has been Donegal's Ulster Council delegate for 12 years.

Tipperary's Con Hogan and Liam O'Neill of Laois have already declared their intention to succeed Christy Cooney as GAA president.
