# CANOEING: Mark Clinton has been elected as the new president of Canoeing Ireland. The Salmon Leap member takes over after what he says were “turbulent” times in recent years. The executive resigned in December and the new president comes in with a major reform programme.

The plans, which were passed by delegates at a recent Annual Delegate Meeting which lasted over six hours, will see regional representatives take up four board posts. Chairs of the disciplines which make up the sport will no longer be automatic members of the board. The restructuring must await a new ADM or egm.

Wesley Burke, William Irwin, Kim Siekerman and Jenny Kilbride were also elected at this year’s ADM.

Clinton is a company director and former Army officer. His father served as Minister for Agriculture and Fisheries from 1973 to 1977.

 Meanwhile, the head office of Canoeing Ireland is moving to the National Sports Campus in Blanchardstown.
