President of the GAA in 1985.
In the true meaning of the much-hackneyed phrase, Mayoman Dr. Mick Loftus has done that, been there and worn the jersey over the course of over 50 years involvement at the highest levels of the GAA. His enthusiasm and passion for Gaelic games is as vital as ever as we discover.
Within the claustrophobic world that is the higher echelons of Gaelic games administration, Dr. Mick Loftus is very well got - as they say in the vernacular. He’s even more well got around his native Crossmolina in County Mayo both within and out with his medical practice and GAA involvement.
