Tony O’Connor, a former chairman of the Kilcummin Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann was recognised by the CCÉ Kerry County Board at its recent AGM.

As is normal now, the AGM took place virtually but was attended by Tadgh Ó Maolcatha who is the chairperson of Munster Comhaltas.

He made a virtual presentation to Tony in recognition of his work over the years.

He has held many officers’ positions on Kerry County Board including chairperson.

“We in Kilcummin CCÉ have a lot to thank Tony for, his guidance, advice and experience is invaluable to us all in the day to day running of our branch,” said Kilcummin PRO Derek O’Leary. “Unfortunately in these strange times the AGM was held on Zoom, so the presentation was a virtual but an unforgettable one all the same. Comhghairdeas leat ó gach duine i Comhaltas Cill Chuimín CCÉ.”
