Fa­mil­iar faces re­turn to LacPa­trick board

Irish Independent - Farming - - NEWS -

A NEW board elected for LacPa­trick Co-op last week has seen the re­turn of some fa­mil­iar faces to rep­re­sent share­hold­ers in the Ca­van-Mon­aghan dis­trict.

The five rep­re­sen­ta­tives on the 15-man board from the old town of Mon­aghan catch­ment area are Bert Ste­wart, An­drew McCon­key, Christy McKenna, Ger­ard Sher­lock and JJ Lavelle.

Ste­wart is well known in IFA cir­cles and is cur­rent chair­man of the as­so­ci­a­tion’s an­i­mal health com­mit­tee.

He was in dan­ger of los­ing his seat on the board un­der new gov­er­nance struc­tures pro­posed by LacPa­trick ear­lier in the year.

How­ever, the changes were re­jected by the co-op’s share­hold­ers in June and fresh board elec­tions were called un­der amended rules. The bal­lot took place last Tues­day, with Smith re­gain­ing his board seat.
