Over the weekend, some of the Pink Ladies donned their finery to attend the fifth annual GALAS LGBT Awards in The Shelbourne Hotel!
The GALAS were created in 2009 by GCN and The National Lesbian and Gay Federation “to encourage and reward those LGBT people who give of themselves for the greater good of their community, to show them that their efforts do not go unsung and that they are an incredible resource which we all value beyond measure”.
Amongst the nominees this year was our very own founder Etain Kidney, who was nominated for ‘Volunteer of the Year’! Etain may not have taken home the award on the night, but to see her name in lights in such a prestigious category had us absolutely BEAMING with pride – for Pink Ladies Hockey Club quite simply would not exist without her selfless dedication over the past three years. TAINER, TAINER, TAINER!
Also, BIG congratulations to Ireland’s only gay mens soccer team, Dublin Devils FC, on winning the award for ‘Sports Group of the Year’!
