We understand the importance GAA clubs and their volunteers play in their local communities and want to reward the clubs for the work they do. It’s been a tough couple of years and locally, we’ve witnessed people going above and beyond by helping others around them. Local clubs are the life blood of our organisation and recently have really shown this to be the case. We want club members across the province to give their time and nominate worthy clubs and get the recognition they deserve”.
