To mark this weekend’s resumption of the Electric Ireland GAA Minor Championships, Electric Ireland, in partnership with the GAA, has launched the 2020 Electric Ireland Minor Star Special Recognition Awards, which will champion the outstanding off-the-pitch contributions of four Minor players during 2020.

The four unique Electric Ireland GAA awards will take into consideration the difficulties experienced this year by players and communities across the country, and will see Electric Ireland recognise Minors who have gone above and beyond in their community during the challenges of Covid-19 – with one Minor honoured in each of the four provinces of Connacht, Munster, Ulster and Leinster.

The Electric Ireland GAA Minor Star Special Recognition Awards will be open to GAA players of Minor age at both club and county level and aim to bring a major moment back into this age group’s lives. Having missed out on a host of coming-of-age moments over the past nine months, the awards will recognise that what these Minors have been doing for their communities during the Covid-19 pandemic, truly is major.

To nominate an extraordinary contribution made by a Minor during the course of the Covid-19 pandemic, simply visit https://www.electricireland.ie/MinorAwards. Nominations can be made by any individual, parent, guardian, volunteer, club official or country official individual or sporting body. Nominations for the awards will close at 5pm sharp on December 14th, 20

Get nominating as we believe it is incredibly important to recognise the major impact of this brilliant age group, particularly in what has been an extremely challenging year for all.
