P.P.U.I. - 26/02/2017 - 2017 Convention Abbey Court Hotel Nenagh
Below is an abbreviated version of the speech PPUI President Mervyn Cooney gave to delegates at Convention in the Abbey Court Hotel Nenagh on Saturday February 25th 2017. Despite the fact I held this office from 1998-2000, I found my return to the Chair a little intimidating. Many things have changed since I left the national administration stage and it took me some time to read myself back into the position of President. I thank my colleagues on the NEC for their support in bringing me up to speed on all issues. The year started with having to deal with some legacy issues which I felt were important to sort out at the earliest opportunity.
