Cycling Ireland EGM

As you are aware UCI president Pat McQuaid is seeking a nomination from Cycling Ireland for a 3rd term as president of the world cycling governing body. As you also know he was originally nominated by the board of CI but this decision was subsequently revoked and an EGM called to allow the membership (via the clubs) vote on the issue.

Attached are details of the EGM, a press release from CI with their reasons for originally supporting his nomination and a document from the group opposing his nomination. I am not aware of an actual published manifesto from Pat McQuaid.

The club is entitled to send 4 voting delegates who must be CI members to the meeting. Can any members who have an opinion on this issue drop a short email to either mickhowe.irl@gmail.com or liamruth1@gmail.com whether they support or oppose Pat McQuaids nomination or if they wish to have a club meeting to discuss this issue. The committee can then decide if there is enough interest to warrant holding a meeting and a formal vote on the issue.
