LIMERICK Minor and Doon GAA goalkeeper Tomás Lynch has been recognized for his outstanding contribution off the pitch in 2020. The Electric Ireland Special Recognition Award sees Minors from each province rewarded for their outstanding work in their communities.
According to the Electric Ireland website: ‘The Transition Year student from Scoil na Tríonóide Naofa was unable to take part in his Work Experience programme in September 2020 due to Covid-19. Determined not to stay at home and miss one of his key learning experiences though, Tomás reached out to his former primary school, Doon C.B.S., for outdoor work experience opportunities. The school’s principal was delighted that Tomás was able to take the students every Tuesday for hurling sessions, and the students were extremely engaged in the sessions and Tomás also put together training programmes for the students to follow at home.’
Speaking about the award winners, Edel McCarthy, Head of Sponsorship & Brand at Electric Ireland stated: “Electric Ireland is delighted to recognise Tomás with the Munster Electric Ireland GAA Minor Special Recognition Award for his outstanding contribution to his local community in 2020. In what has been an extremely challenging year for all, and in particular, this age group, Tomás stood up and made an incredible impact not only on his local community, but the wider society.”
We would like to congratulate Tomás on his great work and wish him the best of luck for the future.
