Congratulations to all the winners. It was a very impressive picture of the talent and achievements of so many in the county. Well done to the Council on this initiative and for the efficient and smooth running of the awards night. North Monaghan was well represented in the list of award winners and I was delighted to see Geraldine McAree among them. She was nominated for her longstanding dedication and commitment to volunteering in her community, Emyvale and the surrounding area. She was coach with Glaslough Harriers for 16 years, training boys and girls, and many of these athletes won county, provincial and All-Ireland titles. In 2003 she started the Jolly Joggers group. This is a social group of people from all sections of the community who wish to run/jog 5k/10k/half-marathon/full marathon. She organises the annual New Year’s Day Run and 2019 was the 10th anniversary of the event. Over 700 people took part and to date over €60,000 has been donated by Geraldine and the Jolly Joggers to Monaghan Cancer Treatment Support. In 2018 Geraldine formed the Jolly Walkers for people who just liked to walk and chat. It too has been a very successful community event. Geraldine motivates everyone and is very generous with her time and support. She is a very worthy of this award, coming as it does as she celebrates 40 years of running and contribution to Athletics and the community.
Carmel Thornton, Monaghan Co. Co was a very competent Master of Ceremmonies; Cllr. David Maxwell, Mayor of Monaghan presented the awards; Eamonn O’Sullivan, CEO Monaghan County Council praised this initiative and congratulated all who were nominated. Minister Humphreys was also in attendance.
