Congratulations to Lorraine Hayes on whom a prestigious award has just been bestowed by Dun Laoghaire Rathdown Co. Co. She is now Volunteer of the Year 2011.  Lorraine has already earned recognition in the club arising from her valued contribution to a range of Cuala activities – Juvenile Boys,  Gaelic4Mothers,  Coiste and a host of social and fundraising activities. Now her achievements have been recognised in a wider forum – the County Community Awards. As the Council put it, its our way of recognising “the enormous variety of projects being undertaken by community groups and supporting and valuing community involvement in local neighbourhoods“.  This year, a theme of  “Active Citizenship”  was adopted to highlight the critical nature of the work being done all over the County for the common good.  Well done Lorraine
