Valuing Volunteers

November 29, 2017

The GAA over the years has survived and prospered at grassroots level in particular on the input of successive generations of volunteers who perform a range of duties and activities that keeps the lifeblood of the association flowing at the most basic level.

In relatively recent times there has been a move to recognise that contribution with "valuing volunteers" scheme at County, provincial and national level in particular. Most recently the Ulster Council of the GAA afforded counties the opportunity of paying tribute to valued volunteers from clubs in the counties, with pieces in their match programmes which brought a whole range of hitherto unknown people to the attention of a much wider audience.

Current Monaghan County chairman Michael Owen McMahon has instigated a similar scheme in Monaghan where all clubs have been asked to nominate valued volunteers who given generously of their time to promote their club and its activities in whatever capacity and that contribution will be recognised at a special presentation function in the Four Seasons Hotel on Wednesday December 13th at 7.30pm where the presentations will be made by the Uachtaran Cumann Luthchleas Gael, Aogan O Fearghaill and the Ard Stiurthoir CLG, Paraic Duffy.
