Over the last 11 months our frontline workers have worked tirelessly to keep us safe and well. In these unprecedented times they have certainly made the ultimate sacrifice to help save other people.

Tommy Devane, GAA commentator with Galway Bay FM and former inter-county player has come up with a wonderful initiative to acknowledge their incredible work. He has asked all thirty-two counties to supply one county jersey accompanied by a short message of thanks. The jersey along with their message will then be framed here in Galway and sent to the hospital or care setting of the county’s choice.

“We’ve already received a huge reaction from the GAA community to the project which is in conjunction with Paul Byrnes Media, our main sponsors Merit Medical and Langan Couriers who have kindly agreed to sponsor the delivery of all 32 jerseys. I am in awe of the magnificent work our amazing frontline workers are doing to protect us every day and they certainly deserve huge recognition. They are the true heroes in this pandemic,” said Tommy.

Galway GAA were the first county to support the initiative thanking all the frontline workers in the county for their continuing hard work and dedication. “This is a wonderful idea and we are delighted to be supporting it. We have a great relationship with all the hospitals and care settings in Galway and we would like to thank all the frontline staff who continue to do an amazing job every day,” said Pat Kearney, Chairman, Galway GAA.
