Martina Hynes from Tuam has been namerd as the 2021 Netwatch Galway Family Carer of the Year

 Martina cares for her son Joseph (9) who has a rare genetic disorder and epilepsy. Martina was nominated by her friend Noreen who said that she goes above and beyond for Joseph and her husband Dermot who works Sunday to Friday in Dublin. Martina is said to always be there to support her friends, helps out at the local inclusion rugby club, and that nothing is too much for her.

 The annual awards seek to recognise and shine a light on the contribution of Ireland’s forgotten frontline who go the extra mile every day in caring for loved ones with additional needs. More than 500,000 people in Ireland provide unpaid care in the home for children or adults disabilities.

Family Carers Ireland, the national charity supporting Ireland’s family carers, runs the annual awards.
