Speaking on the Media awards, Liz Howard, President Camann Cam¾gaÝochta na
nGael stressed that the importance of a consistent approach to the
media in order to maximise publicity for camogie. This  is a priority and
links in with the Association’s Strategic Plan. It was a matter, she
said, of being consistent and persistent in providing the media with
quality information.

In thanking RTE for its support, the President said it was most
appropriate that the station’s former Gaelic Games correspondent Mick
Dunne should be commemorated in these awards. Mick Dunne had a great
loyalty to camogie and gave the game extensive coverage on both radio
and television.

She urged the various media units, camogie units and indeed interested
members of the public who might come across anything they considered
appropriate for inclusion in any of the categories, to respond
positively so that the awards would adequately reflect the importance
the Association attached to them””
