“likely” to step down at Harps
Finn Harps chairman Joey O’Leary admits it is “very likely” he will not go forward for re-election for the position at the forthcoming AGM.

Finn Harps chairman Joey O’Leary admits it is “very likely” he will not go forward for re-election for the position at the forthcoming AGM.

O’Leary is nearing the conclusion of his second two-year term having first taken up the chair in late 2009.

He runs his own business ‘Joey O’Leary Financial Services Limited’, which employs five people and has an office in Ballybofey with another opening in Killybegs.

“I’m going on holiday to Portugal on Monday for a week and will make my mind up by the time I come back,” O’Leary said yesterday.

“At the minute, it’s very unlikely that I will go for re-election. I have a new office in Killybegs, so I have to put my focus on that, as I have a responsibility to my employees and family.”

O’Leary has also been acting Harps treasurer since Denise O’Neill vacated the position during the season.

No date has yet been fixed for Harps’ AGM but the chairman insists it will take place “pretty quickly” after the conclusion of this season. Harps end their fixtures with a trip to Salthill Devon in Galway on Saturday week, October 12.
