St Enda's clubman Ciaran McCavana takes the reins in Antrim

Ciaran McCavana takes over from out-going chairman Collie Donnelly

ST ENDA’S Glengormley club member Ciaran McCavana has been installed as the new chairman of Antrim GAA.

The 44-year-old chartered accountant won a three-way battle for the top post at last night’s county convention, fighting off challenges from All Saints clubman Owen Elliott and St Paul’s veteran Joe Edwards.

McCavana amassed 74 votes with Elliott coming in with 41 and Edwards, 18.

McCavana served as chairman of his club in the early part of this decade and was one of the driving forces behind building Naiscoil Enna on the club grounds in 2005 that now has over 200 pupils.

He is also heavily involved in overseeing the building of a £1.8m community hub at their Glengormley premises.

He takes over from the out-going Collie Donnelly of St John’s. Cushendall’s Tommy Campbell replaces Terry Reilly as vice-chair who stepped down.
