St.Mary’s receive Gold Accreditation
26th September 2014

St.Mary’s GAC recently jointed an elite family within GAA clubs being awarded a Gold Club Maith Award. It’s a tremendous honour to be considered for a Club Maith award especially Gold, Ulster Council Club and Community Development Officer Maura Kelly informed St.Mary’s of the incredible Gold Accreditation.

Club Maith is a club accreditation scheme which is unique to the GAA, it allows clubs to be benchmarked against best practise standards across the full range of GAA Club activity. A Club Maith Award makes a clear proven statement about the quality of a club right across the board. Applications are scored on five categories – Governance, Duty of Care, Community Enhancement, Culture & Heritage, Coaching & Games Development, all of which St.Mary’s GAC have worked hard on and will continue to endeavour.

This is remarkable achievement for the Club, and indeed, sets Naomh Mhuire apart from most, however, these kind of awards are not handed out and do not arrive without much organisation, management, hard work and effort by alot of dedicated people. Obviously, there have been many club volunteers involved at various stages throughout this process, too many to mention individually - Congratulations and well done to everyone, the concentrated efforts have reaped great rewards.
