Introduction from Michael Bowe – Interim CEO, Waterford Area Partnership CLG





Up until very recently I worked for almost 30 years with the Dublin Northwest Area Partnership as CEO. I am very much looking forward to this new role in Waterford Area Partnership. Working with the new interim Board, the staff, and our funders I look forward to the many challenges and opportunities that lie ahead in the coming months.

An entirely new interim Board was appointed on Wednesday 10th March 2021. The Directors are:

  • Jim Finn
  • Deirdre Garvey
  • Rita McNulty
  • Paul O’Sullivan
  • Ciaran Reid
  • Eoin Ronayne (Chairperson)
  • Chris Rowland
  • Senan Turnbull
  • Michael Bowe (Co. Secretary)


My best wishes and sincerest thanks to Richie Grant, outgoing CEO, who has been very helpful in the hand over process. Also, thanks to the staff of the Connect Project, Michael Kennedy, Roz Threadgold, and Patricia Sheehan, who are moving to a new sponsor from the beginning of April 2021.


Watch this space for further updates. Short Bio on the new Chairperson, Eoin Ronayne coming shortly.
