Catherine Whelan from The Heath has received the Laois Adult Community Games Award for her contribution to the games for many years.
Catherine has put in huge work at local level with the very successful Heath area who have enjoyed fantastic results over the years at National Level with Rounders, Draughts, Talent, Art, Athletics to name but a few.
Throughout many years Catherine has been instrumental in all these successes keeping the administration side of the area in a healthy state.
Catherine is also the serving County Treasurer for many years and in the current economic climate it is no easy task but she takes it all in her stride.
Laois Community Games would also like to congratulate Patrick Dunne, Emo on receiving the Laois Youth Community Games Award and Emo/Rath who once again received the Laois Area Award.
