LADIES FOOTBALL- John Sheridan, Kilmacud Crokes GAA Club, Co Dublin 

Cavan native John Sheridan has been a loyal member of the Kilmacud Crokes Club in Dublin since 1972. But it is in the realm of Ladies Football in particular that he has won special recognition. Thanks to John, Kilmacud Crokes started their first ever Ladies football section back in 1996. From those tentative first steps and with John’s constant support, guidance and encouragement, 20 years later Kilmacud have grown from being one Ladies team to now being the biggest Ladies football club in Ireland with 750 active members across 30 teams. His passion and organisational abilities have also helped create the success that is the U14 7-aside event which has grown in prominence since its debut in 2004 and he continues to inspire with his energy and enthusiasm.
