Representatives from nine GAA Clubs were revealed as the first set of recipients of the new Leinster Beko ‘Club Bua’ award at Croke Park on Sunday, 2nd July.
The Leinster GAA Beko Club Bua Award is a new club accreditation and health check initiative, which all clubs in the province are encouraged to enter.
To be considered for an award, clubs take part in an assessment that promotes best practice in areas such as club coaching, club management and club development in an effort to encourage and reward clubs that are striving for excellence on and off the field.
The first nine clubs to receive awards were welcomed to the Leinster Senior Hurling Championship final, and as well as receiving a plaque from Leinster GAA Vice Chairman Pat Teehan and representatives from Beko, they will also receive €1,500 worth of free playing equipment from O’Neill’s and a chance to win free Beko appliances.
There is still a chance for clubs to register and enter as there will be two further draws held for eligible clubs this year. Check out leinstergaa.ie for more details on Club Bua.
The nine winning clubs to date are:
St Anne’s (Dublin)
Glen Emmets GFC (Louth)
St Colmcille’s (Meath)
Mullingar Shamrocks (Westmeath)
An Tochar (Wicklow)
