Offaly Club Nominated For National Lottery Good Causes Award

They're being celebrated for their response to the covid crisis.

An Offaly GAA club has been shortlisted for the National Lottery Good Causes Awards.

36 community groups, sports clubs and organisations across Ireland are into the grand final.

Daingean GAA is being recognised for setting up a community response group when the pandemic hit.

With sport suspended, the club decided to focus on keeping community spirits up by running tables quizzes, bingo nights, providing meals on wheels, and assisting with shopping and medical runs for those unable to leave their homes. 

Each national category winner will receive €10,000, while the overall Good Cause of the Year will get an additional €25,000 on top of this. 

The winners will be announced on Saturday 29th May.
