Gradaim an Uachtaráin CLG GAA President’s Awards
Congratulations Brendie and well done.
INTERNATIONAL AWARD – BRENDIE O’BRIEN
Since arriving in London from Killimor, Co Galway in 1967, Brendie has been involved with St. Gabriel’s Hurling Club. From his playing days, he covered all the administrative positions in the club and was a county committee delegate. During the 1990’s he worked with the underage hurlers which he cites as one of his most enjoyable times in the GAA.
Brendie served as an officer and on many sub-committees as chairperson and member in London GAA and brought great clarity and knowledge to all situations. He was heavily involved in the redevelopment of Ruislip from inception to completion.
He served as central council delegate, chairperson, and secretary of the provincial council of Britain GAA. He was one of the main forces behind the setting up of the All-Britain Championships (ABC’s), the greatest event to promote our games in Britain.
In addition to being vice-president of our association, Brendie was also a member of a number of overseas committees and Chairperson of Féile na nGael. He is still involved in working and volunteering with St. Gabriel’s, London and Provincial Council of Britain and will be willing to complete any task needed to assist and promote our games with the same commitment he always gave.
