Daly out of GAA president race

Donegal's Tom Daly has withdrawn from the race to become the next president of the GAA.

The former Ulster Council president said in a statement that he had reached his decision after considering the demands of the position in relation to his professional and personal commitments.

"Having assessed the situation fully, I have decided not to contest the election.

In making this decision, I have had to balance both personal and professional commitments against the three-year, full-time and intense level of commitment that the GAA presidency entails," said the Aodh Ruadh, Ballyshannon clubman..

"I deeply appreciate my nomination for this prestigious position and the many offers of support which I have received from throughout the Association.

Mr Daly will this weekend complete a 23 year unbroken membership of the Ulster Council, including the role of president from 2007 until 2010.
