Cappawhite GAA Club is proud to nominate Anne Holmes as a worthy recipient of the Sean Gael Award for 2015. Anne was the first serving female officer of Cappawhite GAA Club. She came in as treasurer in 1993 and took over as secretary two years later. She remained in that position for ten years and, after taking a break for a number of years came back in as treasurer two years ago. Anne is a person of the highest integrity and has demonstrated a professional and diligent approach to her administrative duties. Anne is also a long serving member of the Lotto Committee which raises vital funds for both the club and the Community Centre. We thank Anne for her contribution to the club and we look forward to her continued participation for many years to come.
