The Garda Youth Awards, at Divisional and National level, celebrates outstanding young people aged between 13 and 21 years, and recognises the good work they are doing throughout their communities.

Cuala were recognised for their unselfish and spontaneous contribution within the wider community for their work during the Club Together Initiative at the start of the pandemic in 2020.

Over 200 Cuala volunteers – mostly young players from across all codes – provided shopping/delivery services for over 1,000 residents cocooned during that phase of the pandemic.

Michael Jackson (Vice-Chairperson) accepted the award on behalf of the Cuala during the week from Ryan Tubridy (RTE)
