30 candidates and several interviews later we have white smoke for our advertised sports dev post. The news is that it will take two to replace the legendary Rahim Nazarali.
The successful candidates are Joe Geraghty and Alex Whelan.
Having spent 40 years with us Joe is naturally well known to most. The 1984 Paralympian is a European 5000m silver medallist whose 1500m and 5000m records stand to this day. Joe was inducted to our Hall of Fame in 2015 and has served in most of our admin roles over 5 decades. He recently retired from the Civil Service and as our Chair.
Alex is known to so many as the most helpful volunteer on earth. He is key coach at blind football where he is credited with the development and success of our teams over the past 5 years. In his spare time Alex can be found over at blind / vi tennis and travelled with the Irish team to the inaugural world championships in Alicante last May.
