Mike Treacy, who has been chair of Dundalk FC for the past two years has decided to step down from the role due to family reasons.

The job will now be taken over by Bill Hulsizer to lead the club into the 2020 Airtricity League Premier Division season where the Lillywhites attempt to win three titles in a row, and six in seven years.

It comes following the announcement that Mark Devlin stepped down as Chief Executive of the club after just seven months in charge.

 

“My family and I have decided it’s time for me to step aside from PEAK6 and focus on my wife Laura’s medical career during this pivotal stage.

"Moving on to the next chapter will unfortunately require I step down as Chairman of Dundalk Football Club. I am honoured to have served as Chairman these last two seasons and forever grateful to the Dundalk community.

While this was a difficult decision, I am excited for Bill to assume a larger role with Dundalk FC and lead the Club’s continued progression both on and off the pitch. His passion and commitment are unparalleled as Dundalk FC begins a new decade of football.”

Speaking after the appointment - the successor Bill Hulsizer said, “On behalf of the Board and everybody at Dundalk Football Club, we wish to thank Mike for his outstanding contribution to the club and Irish football over the past two years.

"We wish Laura and Mike all the very best in their future and he will always be a respected contributed to our past and future successes at our club.”

Dundalk's new season opens with a home game against Derry City at Oriel Park on February 14th.
