Translink and Ulster GAA encourage Gaelic Football, Hurling, Camogie, Rounders and Handball clubs across Ulster to nominate young people aged 14-24 years old, whose actions best demonstrate the volunteering ethos and community spirit, for the monthly Translink Ulster GAA Young Volunteer award. The award celebrates the outstanding contribution made by young members to their clubs and communities. Each month throughout the 2022 season a winner will be selected who best represents the volunteering ethos of the GAA. To nominate a young person for this award, visit:

ulster.gaa.ie/youngvolunteeraward.

The nomination process opens on the first Monday of each month and closes on the 20th of each month, after which a judging panel will select the winner. Monthly winners will receive a commemorative certificate, an item of Ulster GAA merchandise, and a set of Enterprise tickets, provided by Translink.

An overall Translink Ulster GAA Young Volunteer of the Year will be awarded at the end of the season, and the winner will receive a free set of jerseys for their club.

The criteria for the Translink Young GAA Volunteer of the Year Award are as follows:

  • Young volunteer (14-24 years old) who has demonstrated an outstanding commitment to their role as a volunteer, as nominated by their club.
  • Has dedicated a substantial amount of time to volunteering, and shown an ability to go above and beyond the typical expectation of someone their age.
  • Has impacted on others and been an inspiration and/or positive role model.
