MacNamee Award for Roscommon GAA.
It has been announced that Roscommon GAA has won a prestigious MacNamee award for their 2021 Roscommon Senior Football Championship Final Programme in the category – ‘Best Programme GAA’.
The GAA National Communication and Media Awards are named after the late Pádraig MacNamee, former President of the GAA, Chairman of the GAA Commission (1969-1971) and member of the RTÉ authority.
They are presented annually in recognition of outstanding contributions made by individuals and Association units in the area of media and communications.
Uachtarán CLG Larry McCarthy said: “From its very beginning, the GAA has been aware of the importance of telling our story and being able to connect with our members and supporters. The MacNamee Awards are a prestigious recognition of excellence in this field and have grown to match the changes in an ever-evolving media landscape.
“We appreciate the coverage that our games command across the media at club and county level. I salute all of those who are being honoured, and in particular, pay tribute to Seán Moran and Enda McEvoy who are very worthy entrants to the Hall of Fame for the high standards, and longevity, with which they have reported on our great games and players.”
The judges commented on Roscommon GAA’s Programme – “Filled with excellent editorial and statistics with a well styled cover, the Roscommon senior & junior championship final match programme treats the reader to a thoughtfully designed, easy on the eye, well-structured match programme. The planned layout of the editorial makes for an enjoyable and informative read.”
The award will be formally presented at a special ceremony at Croke Park on Friday 13th October 2023.
