Volunteers in Sports Awards
With the deadline for nominations for the National Awards to Volunteers in Irish Sports only 25 days away, we are encouraging all Sports to support this initiative and go online and nominate committed individuals within your Sport. Nomination can be made online at www.volunteersinsport.ie . This is the third year that the National Awards to Volunteers in Irish Sport will be taking place and the ceremony will honour ten individuals who are representative of the 400,000 people who volunteer their time and effort to sport in Ireland each year through their involvement with sports clubs and organisations throughout the country doing a multitude of tasks. The award winners will be selected by a committee and awards will be presented by the Minister Mary Hanafin for Tourism, Culture and Sport at a ceremony in Farmleigh in early 2011. This is a great opportunity recognise and thank committed individuals within your Sport as well as highlighting the importance of volunteerism to the delivery of sport in Ireland. The deadline for nominations is Tuesday 30th November and therefore, we would ask that you submit your sports nominations just as soon as possible.
