Anne McHale of Ballina Braves Boys Basketball club was among a number of volunteers who was honoured earlier this week at the virtual 2020 Federation of Irish Sports "Volunteers in Sport" Awards.
Sports clubs and members of the public were invited late last year to nominate individuals whose contribution to sport has made a real difference to their community, club or county.
A judging panel has selected the award winners, with volunteers across each of the 32 counties being honoured.
In addition, Anne McHale of Ballina Braves receives the overall Outstanding Achievement Award for her many years of service to the Mayo club.
Anne has dedicated her life to the sport of basketball and has inspired a whole club of up-and-coming young boys in the sport.
