St Canice’s GAC & Kevin Lynch Hurling Club came together to nominate Mr Pat “Paroe”Mc Closkey in the Irish News Sport Club Volunteer of the Year awards and we have just learnt that Pat has been shortlisted for this award. Pat is a familiar face around both clubs on a daily basis right throughout the year. No task is too big or small whether it being selling lotto, lining the field, acting as a team mentor, supporting the clubs on trips throughout Ireland, umpiring at underage games, collecting at the gate, or the countless other task & hours Pat volunteers up to the cause of the GAA community in Dungiven. Pat does this always with a smile on his face and words of encouragement for underage players in both codes. The clubs would urge everyone to share this message and lets get everyone behind Pat and hopefully he will win the award as there are few other as deserving as him.
