New President of the South East Board; Mr. Joe O’Driscoll.
The South East Board held their inaugural meeting of the 2018 season at Riverstick on Monday January 15th.  One of the important items on the agenda  was the election of a new President to replace the late Neilus O’Regan.
Joe O’Driscoll was elected unanimously and this is deserved recognition for a man who served his Division with distinction.
Joe first encountered South East Cork when he played senior hurling and football with the Carrigdhoun teams.   Joe was an accomplished player and cut his teeth playing Harty cup hurling with Sullivan’s Quay in his secondary school days.  He played for Carrigdhoun against some of the great senior club teams of that era including Glen Rovers , when playing at corner back encountering great forwards such at Ring and Quane.
At an early age Joe was interested in administration and having represented Shamrocks at the South East Board he was elected Vice-Chairman in 1965.  Gabriel Murphy of Valley Rovers was in the chair then. After three years in Office he was elected Chairman where he went on to serve with distinction for twelve consecutive years. Joe brought a new dynamism to the post and smartened up the Division with new ideas and strong leadership.   He gathered around him some other progressive officers such as Donal Coleman, Dermot O’Brien and Mylie Collins.
After completing twelve years in the chair he stepped down at the end of 1978 when Ballymartle’s Carl Daly succeeded him.  It can be said that he surely did the South East Board some service.
Hearty congratulations to Joe on a well deserved honour.
