Representatives from 11 GAA Clubs in Leinster had the honour of receiving €1,500 of free equipment and a special memento at Croke Park last Sunday as winners of a Beko ‘Club Bua’ award.
The club officers were introduced to the crowd at the half time in the Senior Football final between Dublin and Laois – with another set of clubs set to be rewarded for their efforts at the Hurling final next Sunday.
Now in its second year, the Leinster GAA Beko Club Bua Award is a club accreditation and health check initiative, which all clubs in the province are eligible to participate in.
Clubs have been invited to take part in an assessment that promotes best practice in areas such as coaching, management and development, in an effort to encourage and recognise clubs that are striving for excellence on and off the field.
The presentations were made by Shane Kelly, Sales & Marketing Manager with Beko and Jim Bolger, Chairman of Leinster GAA.
There is still a chance for clubs to enter as another draw will be held for clubs later this summer. Check out leinstergaa.ie/clubbua for more details.

St. Fechin’s (Louth)
Taghmon Camross (Wexford)
Ballinastraw Gaels (Wexford)
