Surprise! Family, club-mates and friends pay tribute to Lulu Carroll award winner

LAST Saturday evening (February 17), at Croke Park, the Ladies Gaelic Football Association presented its inaugural Volunteer of the Year awards. 
Winners were honoured in seven categories for 2017, with Sheena Byrne taking home the prestigious Lulu Carroll award after she was named as Overall Volunteer of the Year. 
The LGFA commissioned this special video for Sheena, which was broadcast at the event before she stepped on stage to receive her award. 
Sheena was presented with the Lulu Carroll award by Marie Hickey, President of the Ladies Gaelic Football Association, and Lulu’s mother, Angela. 
The Lulu Carroll award is named after the late Lulu Carroll, who was a 2001 All-Ireland senior medallist with Laois. 
Lulu, who passed away in 2007, was a committed servant to Ladies Football at club and county levels, and one of the game’s most popular and well-known figures. 
Lulu, a former All-Star recipient, also won eight Leinster titles with Laois, along with six county senior titles and a provincial crown at club level with Timahoe.
