Ned Quinn will stand down as Kilkenny GAA chairman at next week's convention after almost two decades in one of the chief officer roles.

Quinn will take over as Central Council delegate as outgoing secretary Jimmy Walsh becomes the new chair. The outgoing vice-chair Conor Deneiffe, faces no challenge as new secretary.

Quinn has been either chairman or secretary of Kilkenny GAA for the last 18 years, serving first as chairman from 1999 to 2008 before taking over as secretary for the next five years.

When his five years as secretary were complete he moved back into the chair where he has been since. Kilkenny have enjoyed their most glorious period under Quinn's administration with success on the hurling field complemented by the development of Nowlan Park as one of the foremost venues in the country.
