Carlow Camogie’s Chairperson Linda Kenny has been selected for a Gradaim an Uachtaráin 2021 (Presidents Award).
The well known Burren rangers and Carlow camogie member was picked amongst 10 other people from across the country to receive the accolade.
Winners are selected from a cross-section of people who have shared the common theme of making an inspirational impact on their code and also their club and community.
These prestigious annual awards give the GAA an opportunity to acknowledge the outstanding commitment and long service across the club and county network.
Linda has been working incredibly hard in camogie in the county since 2009 when she became fixtures secretary of Carlow Camogie and since then has been fundamental to the rebuilding of the county sides. Linda has served as secretary for five years and is the current chairperson.
In 2017 Linda was appointed by Leinster GAA as camogie representative to the féile organising committee and served as PRO. Throughout 2017 Linda and the organising committee worked tirelessly to ensure what was one of the most successful Féile na Gael’s on record, with the largest number of hurling and camogie teams participating ever.
At the recent Leinster AGM, Linda was elected as Uachtarán Tofa and will take up the post in April 2021.
The GAA Presidents’ Awards will be broadcast on Sunday next, 28 February on TG4 at 5.10 pm.
