Canoeing Ireland chooses Moira Aston as its new chief executive
Meath woman has previously been national competition manager for Athletics Ireland
Moira Aston: she will take up her new post in December
She had previously been national competition manager for Athletics Ireland. She was the unanimous choice of the interview panel for the canoeing post.
The chief executive’s role has been held for 18 months by Paddy Boyd, who took over on an interim basis and settled the ship after a rocky period for the governing body. Sport Ireland played a big part in his appointment, and in choosing Aston.
The announcement means that the chief executives of both Rowing Ireland (Michelle Carpenter) and Canoeing Ireland are women.
