The Translink Ulster GAA Young Volunteer of the Year Award is an initiative designed to celebrate the important contribution young members of the association make to their clubs and communities.

Gaelic Football, Hurling, Camogie, Rounders and Handball clubs across Ulster are encouraged to nominate young people aged 16-24 years old, whose actions best demonstrate the volunteering ethos and community spirit.

Young people have made an outstanding contribution to their club during the 2021 season. Given the challenging times that all communities have experienced recently, it is important to acknowledge those young people who have risen to the challenge.

This is the fifth year of the initiative and all of the young nominees will hope to emulate 19-year-old Niamh Rafferty from St Brenda’s Camogie Club, Ballymacnab, Co. Armagh, who was the winner of the prestigious award last year.

The winner will receive a prize package including specially commissioned Volunteer of the Year merchandise, a Translink travel voucher for complimentary Enterprise Plus travel for two people to Dublin and a complimentary set of Translink-sponsored jerseys for their club youth team

The nomination process opens on 24th November and closes on 8th December.
