The Reel Deal

On Friday night, Armagh LGFA Chairperson Sinead Reel picked up the County/Provincial Officer of the Year award at the LGFA’s National Volunteer Awards.

The honour was for someone who has “devoted time and energy and shown exceptional dedication to their role for the betterment of Ladies Gaelic Football”.

Sinead was described by presenter Daithi O’Se as “a driving force behind Ladies Gaelic Football in her county. She’s County Chairperson, and her passion is spearheading the current development at McKeever Park, which will be the home of Armagh LGFA”.

“Ladies Football in Armagh wouldn’t be as vibrant without Sinead Reel”.

Armagh experienced a successful 2020 on the field, catching the eye of many throughout the country for their fast-paced attacking football.

Ronan Murphy’s side were crowned Ulster Championship while also reaching the last four of the All-Ireland Championship.

Off the field, Sinead has been leading the *LetsLightKillean campaign, the new home of ladies football in Armagh.

Speaking at the virtual award ceremony, the Silverbridge woman expressed her appreciation of having “a good team” around her, as they become the countries first ever ladies team to have their own facilities.

A well-deserved award to recognise their tireless hard work Sinead has done for ladies football within the county!

During the week the LGFA also announced that they will present a special TV show on TG$ to honour the teams of the year.
