On behalf of all the club members who volunteered to help provide shopping to vulnerable people during the early months of the Covid 19 pandemic in 2020, the club proudly accepted this Recognition award from the office of the Taoiseach.
These awards were given to organisations that worked with Volunteer Ireland to support people in their communities during this tough time.
The club cannot thank enough the 32 volunteers who generously gave their time to collect shopping for many people all over our community. It was a huge effort by all these wonderful people who, with little notice, quietly did several runs each day with shopping to various people in the area and check if they are ok, need anything else etc. All the real work was done by all these volunteers, and we feel so privileged to be able to help in this effort... THANK YOU.
We would also like to extend congratulation to the volunteers of the Maree Oranmore Soccer club who also received this award for all the work that they did to support the community at that time.
All Community organisations need the support of the local people, and we are always delighted and feel privileged to give back to the community in any way we can.
Long may this community spirit continue to support and help one another at all times.
