Michael Crowley Co-Ordinator for the Cork Sports Partnership outlined that, “These awards celebrate the wonderful contribution that so many people make through Sport and the Cork Sports Partnership some years ago made a decision to recognize this. Volunteers, coaches and Parents invest huge amounts of their time and energy into sports clubs, organisations and innovative projects, and deserve to be recognised and thanked for this voluntary contribution.

The Cork Sports Partnership team is working hard to promote the benefits of a healthy and active lifestyle, and the award-winners serve as an inspiration to us all.” Chairperson of the Sports partnership Mr. Ted Owens
