Rose Breen, of Monageer-Boolavogue, has been awarded the county's Camogie 'Volunteer of the Year Award' for being a great ambassador for club and county over 30 years.

Rose was nominated for her outstanding contribution to the club and to many other associations.

'Rose continues to be an active member of our camogie committee and a key contributor in our club running and development,' said Wexford Camogie Chairperson, Donnacha Kerins.

Rose was treasurer of the GAA Club for a number of years, including during the time that the club successfully applied for and was granted Lotto funding to purchase and develop the third playing pitch and new clubhouse.

Rose, along with winners from other counties, was awarded at a special ceremony lunch in Croke Park Stadium.

In 2016, Rose served on Monageer-Boolavogue camogie and GAA committees, Wexford Supporters Club committee and Wexford Camogie Finance Committee and was also the chairperson for Monageer Parish and Hall committee.

Rose has been a leading light in the club fundraising activities and motivates others to play their part - club members and non-club members alike. Rose is a regular attender at camogie matches and is often seen collecting on gates around the county.

Donnacha said 'Rose is a great communicator, excellent team member and successful in generating funding for various ventures. She is a fantastic asset to us.'
