GAA President's Award for Seán McGourty
12th March 2016
The GAA President's awards, organised with the support of club championship sponsors AIB and broadcast by TG4 are staged annually by the GAA and provide the GAA President with an opportunity to acknowledge outstanding commitment and long service across the club, and county network from people whose highly valued contribution may not be recognised on the national stage.
We are delighted that Seán McGourty is a worthy winner.
ULSTER - Seán McGourty, Naomh Gall CLG, Antrim.
Congratulations to Seán McGourty who won a GAA President's award at Croke Park :
Towards the end of his playing career Seán focused his attention to the development aspect of the club both on and off the field. He introduced a juvenile section that produced many fine teams, littered with dual players.
As a result St Gall's won 13 county Senior Football Championships in 14 years, and hurling championship title at intermediate. It was no accident that in 2010 St Gall's contested the All-Ireland club finals in senior football and intermediate hurling, winning the football. There were nine dual players on the teams.
