Michael Cunningham, President Connacht Branch IRFU presents Peter Keane, Connemara RFC with volunteer award- 28th March 2008
As part of the IRFU Volunteer Recognition Programme, Peter Keane, long time volunteer with Connemara RFC was presented with a volunteer award at the Sportsground, Galway on Friday 28th March 2008.
Following a nomination by Connemara RFC Underage section, Peter was selected by the Connacht Branch IRFU to receive an award in recognition of his years of volunteering with Connemara RFC. Peter has worked tirelessly at senior committee level and also with the youth and mini rugby section of the club for many years and is still very active at both levels. He originally became involved with Connemara RFC back in 1977 and also played for the club for about 10 years. He has served the club well as a committee member since 1977 and has also served as PRO for many years. He is well known in many circles for promoting and encouraging involvement in Connemara Rugby. His roles in the club currently include: Mini Coach, Youth Chairperson, Youth Fundraising, Branch Delegate, Pitch Committee, Lotto Committee and Website Team. A love of rugby and community are without a doubt only two reasons for such dedicated involvement. At training, games and events Peter is known for his ability to relate to and encourage all players all the way from Mini Rugby right up to seniors. He has seen many mini players make their way through the ranks up to the senior team. The youth and mini sections are delighted that the nomination was successful and that Peter’s dedication has been recognised by Connemara RFC and Connacht Rugby.
Connemara RFC strives to support all of our volunteers. We recognise and value their contribution to the club at all levels.
