A Message from RSTA President Padraic O'Doherty

The 56th AGM of RSTA took place in Galway on 7th May 2019.  It was a great honour to be re-elected as your President for the coming year starting on 1st September.

It was encouraging to see such a large number of members present and the valuable contributions that came from the participants.

A special word of thanks goes to the Galway branch for hosting the Conference and to the local sub-committee who planned the event and sought sponsorship.  The trip to Connemara, helped by the weather, made the occasion most memorable.

I thank the officers and members of the National Committee for their support and encouragement during the past year, in particular, the outgoing members for their work throughout their many years of serving the organisation; the incoming members will be assured both support and encouragement from their predecessors and they are most welcome.

We now look forward to next year's Annual Conference in Kallarney, hosted by RSTA Kerry.

Pictured below is RSTA President Pardric O'Doherty at the RSTA Conference in Galway with Galway Branch Secretary Mary Francis O'Conghaile and guests Margaret Browne, Secretary Retired Workers' Committee ICTU and Matt Reville, President RTAI:
