Ulster’s 2017 Elevate Clubs Honoured

March 31st, 2017

Ten GAA clubs have successfully achieved Ulster GAA’s Prestigious Elevate Award in 2017.  The ten clubs from across Ulster gathered at a club-focused awards ceremony hosted by Ulster GAA’s Treasurer Ciaran McLaughlin at the Navan Centre in Armagh on Thursday evening.

Speaking at the ceremony Ciaran McLaughlin said, “Ulster GAA is delighted that our prestigious Elevate Programme has been successfully rolled out for the second year now, with another 10 clubs achieving awards.

“Ulster GAA’s Elevate Award aims to offer clubs a higher level of expertise across a range of areas from: Leadership and Management, Club Planning and Marketing, Financial Management and Fundraising and Capital Projects and Partnerships.  We could not offer such a prestigious award without the important contribution of our expert tutors.  All of which are from GAA backgrounds, who have experience and knowledge either in their professional or personal lives across all these issues.  All our tutors are volunteers and we greatly appreciate their time, effort and experience in helping to deliver this programme.

“Our awards ceremony is an opportunity for Ulster GAA to honour the 10 clubs who participated in the 2017 Award, recognising their commitment to club development.  It is also an opportunity for participating clubs to network with the other clubs so that they can call on each other for advice and guidance in future club planning projects.”

The 10 successful clubs who achieved Elevate Awards in 2017 were: St Ergnat’s GAC Moneyglass; St John’s GAC; O’Donovan Rossa GAA, Magherafelt; Kildress Wolfe Tones; Cavan Gaels; Magheracloone Mitchells; Gortin St Patrick’s; O’Connors Glack; Ruiairi Og, Cushendall; St Malachy’s GAC, Castledawson.

The Elevate Programme will run again in the New Year 2018, any club wishing to register their interest now for this Award should email sharon.haughey.ulster@gaa.ie or phone Sharon on 02837517 180
