Mungret/St Paul’s GAA Club Notes:

Volunteer in Sport:
The Federation of Irish Sport recognised recipients of the 2023 Volunteers in Sports Awards on Thursday, 29 February, celebrating their dedication and giving freely of their time locally to make sport happen Proudly supported by the National Network of 29 Local Sports Partnerships the committed volunteers from all across the country were honoured at an awards ceremony in Dublin with special guest speaker Minister Thomas Byrne, Minster of State with responsibility for Sport and Physical Education presenting the 32 county awards.
Mungret St. Pauls GAA Club is very proud to have one of our own club members being recognised for her unwavering dedication to the club through her role as PRO. Wanda Dwane can be seen at most matches with her camera as she catches the players in action. A weekly newsletter is produced on our club website every Tuesday evening by Wanda with the Camogie and Ladies Football PROs help. This is a fantastic way for all our members, supporters and sponsors to see what is going on in the club every week.
The vital role of volunteers in advancing sports participation and community development can not be underestimated or taken for granted. The economic significance of volunteering has an estimated value of €1.5 billion annually to the Irish economy. This figure underscores the immense social and economic benefits derived from the invaluable contributions of volunteers across the Irish sporting landscape.
Federation CEO Mary O’Connor commented; “We are delighted to bring together the 2023 recipients of the Volunteers in Sport Awards from all over the country to receive their award from Minister Byrne today. Without this army of volunteers in clubs all around the country, we would not have the level of grassroots participation that we do. It is important to take this time out and show our appreciation to the many unsung heroes of sport. We have heard today how sport can have such a meaningful and positive impact on our physical and mental health. These volunteers are the conduit to providing that benefit.”
