February 2012 Notice to National Representatives: Obituary
ICA regrets to announce the death of its former Chair, Harry Nally, in Dublin on 22 February 2012. Harry was the ninth person to take the Chair of ICA and presided over the 19th Conference in Madrid in October 1985 and the 20th Conference in Berlin the following year.
Harry Nally’s contribution to ICA is unique. In October 1984 the then ICA Chair unexpectedly resigned on leaving the Public Service. At such short notice no one was in a position to take the office of chairman. It seemed as if ICA was to be left leaderless! Harry Nally (Ireland) who had already made his mark in ICA affairs and notwithstanding heavy work commitments in his own administration, agreed to stand, subject to ratification by his government. This was granted, initially for a period of one year and later extended for a further year.
Harry’s period as of office led to an upturn in ICA’s fortunes. Although always ready to listen and do what he could to help'he was also a man with a reputation for getting things done. Together with Seamus Clince he created a formidable team which quickly gained International respect.; so,not only was a major crisis averted but membership increased, as did attendance at conference There is little doubt that ICA could and would not have survived in 1984 without Harry’s leadership, and we will forever be in his debt.
In October 2007, at the 41st Conference in Dublin Harry Nally’s immense contribution to Ireland and ICA over many years was recognised with its Distinguished Service Award.
Our deepest sympathies are with his wife, Nuela and their family, who looked after and cared for him for so many years.
