Eugene Drennan has been elected as president of the Irish Road Haulage Association (IRHA).
Mr. Drennan is a leading light in the haulage industry and has been a prominent member of the IRHA for many years and needs little introduction.
Mr. Drennan commented: “I am honoured with the fulsome support I received when allowing my name to go forward for this position. I never expected or predicted that I would be in this position and yet circumstances have been such that this has transpired.”
He added: “I wish to thank the Members and drivers for their work at this time. I and management really appreciate the enormous effort and work ethic of the hauliers and all their drivers and all they are doing on behalf of Ireland.”
He concluded: “I wish you all good health and look forward to meeting at the earliest allowed opportunity to assess the overall situation for transport and plan a way forward for our industry and our organisation, Ireland will be different post covid-19.”
The IRHA Council also ratified the election of Paul Jackman to the position of Vice President and Pat O’Donovan to the position of Deputy Vice President.
