Jim Kelly RIP


Jim Kelly RIP

 It is with great regret we report the death of Jim Kelly, Honorary Life Vice President of Athletics Ireland, and a former President of the NACAI (1988-1990).

Jim had a distinguished record of involvement in the sport. He was a founding member of St Gerard's AC in Dundalk and remained as Honorary President of the club.

Jim also played a prominent role in cycling including acting as the Ras Tailteann Race Director from 1973-1975 and a former President of the NCA.

We convey our deepest sympathy to his family at this time.
