Offaly Camogie scoop two National awards thumbnailMick Dunne Memorial Award - PRO of the Year. Ann Marie Guinan of the Offaly Camogie Board is presented with her award by Catherine Neary (President, Camogie Association) and Una Dunne.

ANN Marie Guinan (Drumcullen) and Mary Brady (St Sinchill's) were honoured at the Camogie Association's Media and volunteer awards in Croke Park last Saturday evening. Mary Brady won Offaly's volunteer of the year award after being nominated by her club.

On the evening the Camogie Association read the following snippet from their nomination form "It is difficult to put into words the important role Mary Brady has played and currently plays in the running and development of St. Sinchill's camogie club. Members young and old, past and present associate Mary with St Sinchill's camogie club.

"We as a club can vouch for the dedication, support and commitment Mary has contributed to her club, her county and the game of camogie."

Ann Marie Guinan was selected by the Media and Communications committee for the Mick Dunne Memorial award of PRO of the year. Ann Marie manages the Offaly camogie social media accounts including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Ann Marie also writes match reports and news stories for the local media on all camogie matters while also working on match programmes and with sponsors of competitions.

When Ann Marie received her award the Camogie Association commended Ann Marie's work on the Offaly camogie crest competition and also the build up on social media for the local club championship videos on social media. It is the second time Offaly have won the accolade with Damian Moran winning the prize in 2014.
