Cusack steps down as Offaly GAA Secretary thumbnailEamon Cusack, who has stepped down as Offaly GAA secretary.

OFFALY GAA has been rocked with the sudden resignation of Secretary Eamon Cusack.

The Durrow man who was elected at Convention back in December 2016 and subsequently re-elected last December, has stepped down from his post with immediate effect.

Mr Cusack was in attendance at the February meeting of the Offaly County Board last Tuesday week but it appears that there have been issues between then and the weekend just gone by.

It is not known what his reasons for stepping down are or whether there have been long standing issues.

When contacted by the Tribune on Monday, Mr Cusack had no comment to make on the matter while Mary Dunne, PRO of Offaly GAA, also confirmed that the Offaly County Board also had no comment to make when contacted on Monday afternoon.

It is unclear what the process will be for electing a new Secretary. St Rynagh's Pat Horan was elected as assistant secretary back in December and is only two months in the job so whether he is in a position to step up remains to be seen.

Mr Cusack had previously served as PRO with the County Board and is also a former referee. It is an extremely busy role in modern day GAA and especially at this time of year with National Leagues started and the start of the club leagues also kicking off.

Regradings are also due to be dealt with at the March meeting of the County Board with clubs normally sending in their regrading of players to the County Secretary.
