Relations between members of Club Kildare and the executive of the Co. Board have become ‘strained’ of late and came to a head at the recently convened EGM of Club Kildare when Chairman Pat Mangan and Vice Chairman Dermot Reilly were highly critical of Co. Board Chariman, John McMahon and County Treasurer Martin Whyte.

Mr. Mangan has been Chairman of Club Kildare for some ten years and during that time Club Kildare has raised in the region of E1.5 million.
