TESCO Homegrown Club Person of the Year Nominations Open

TESCO HomeGrown Club Person of the Year Awards

The 2014 TESCO Homegrown Club Person of the Year award is now up and running and accepting nominations for the four provincial awards. This very special award recognises the contribution of volunteers at all levels of the sport to their clubs. These volunteers are vital to continued growth of ladies football at grassroots level in communities throughout the country.


There are five TESCO Homegrown Club Person of the Year awards, one for each of the four provinces with one of those provincial winners selected as the overall winner. Every club in the country has already received a nomination form and are invited to return the form with the details of their nominee by the closing date of Friday, January 24th, 2014. If further details are required they can be obtained at www.ladiesgaelic.ie


Last year’s awards saw Catherine Ring named as the Munster Club Person of the Year, Paddy Madine claimed the Ulster Club Person award and Yeonette O’Rourke was selected as the Connacht Club Person of the Year. The Leinster award was shared by Michael and Kathleen Colreavy from Naomh Mearnóg who also went on to share the overall title of TESCO Homegrown Club Persons of the Year.


Speaking about the TESCO Homegrown Club Person of the Year Awards LGFA President, Pat Quill said ‘This is a fantastic competition that puts the focus on the great work done by volunteers and administrators throughout the country. It is fair to say that much of the focus in our sport goes onto what happens on the field of play but without the tireless work of these great people behind the scenes there would not be a game. Last year the caliber of our 4 award winners was phenomenal and I am sure that it will be no different this year.’


Henry Dummer, Marketing Director of TESCO Ireland said “TESCO is once again delighted to be involved in a celebration of the work that goes on at grassroots level in Ladies Football  and quite often behind the scenes and away from the bright lights. The stories of previous provincial and national winners have been truly inspiring from club founders, to jersey washers, to PROs and grounds people. They are the people that make our clubs tick and TESCO is delighted to acknowledge these people and we look forward to celebrating their achievements in Croke Park later in the year and to announcing the overall national winner. We wish all the nominees the very best of luck.”
