 2009 NATIONAL AWARDS TO VOLUNTEERS IN IRISH SPORT: Over 400,000 people give of their time voluntarily to sports clubs and organisations in Ireland each year. Johnny Watterson reports

VOLUNTEERS, WHO run and administer sport in Ireland but often go unnoticed, were honoured yesterday at a National Awards ceremony in Dublin. Every year in Ireland over 400,000 people give their time voluntarily to Irish sport through their involvement with sports clubs and organisations.

Twelve of those individuals were honoured at a presentation in Farmleigh yesterday when Minister for Arts, Sport and Tourism, Martin Cullen presented the 2009 National Awards to Volunteers in Irish Sport.

Among the recipients was Jim O'Shea from Waterford, the father of Manchester United's John O'Shea. He received a lifetime award for his work with local soccer club, Ferrybank AFC.

Liz Howard, who has been involved with the GAA for many years, particularly camogie, received the award for National Administrator of the Year, while the award for Junior Volunteer went to 17-year-old Orla Grehan from Ferbane in Co Offaly for her work with Ferbane Belmont Minor GAA Club.

The National Awards to Volunteers in Irish Sports is an initiative of the Department of Arts, Sport and Tourism in conjunction with the Federation of Irish Sports which represents some 68 sports in Ireland.

The scheme is also being supported by Setanta Sports, the Community Foundation and the Irish Sports Council.

This is the second time the awards have been presented with individuals also receiving recognition at the inaugural event in 2007.

The winners were selected by a committee chaired by the 1956 Olympic 1500 metre champion, Ronnie Delany and also included Malachy Logan, Sports Editor, The Irish Times ; Des Cahill, RTÉ; Niall Cogley, Setanta Sports; John Treacy, CEO, The Irish Sports Council; Tim Scully, Department of Arts, Sport Tourism and Sarah O'Connor, CEO, the Federation of Irish Sports.

Speaking at the presentation of the awards Minister Cullen said: 'Sport at every level in Ireland could not exist without the efforts of the many volunteers who give their time freely to encourage people to become involved in sport and to nurture those people through the important formative years of their sporting careers. The commitment, generosity and contribution of these volunteers to our communities and society is inestimable. It would be difficult to put a real value on what they give to Irish sport and how Irish sport benefits from their efforts.

'In presenting awards to the 12 volunteers today we wish to recognise all of the 400,000 people who give of their time so freely every year. As a country we punch far above our weight on a world stage. That we do is inextricably linked to the efforts of our volunteers who have undoubtedly nurtured most of our stars to take the first steps to sporting success'.

Also speaking at the presentation of the awards, Sarah O'Connor, chief executive of the Federation of Irish Sports, said: 'Ireland has a rich vein of people volunteering in sport at all levels. It is imperative that we never take such volunteering for granted. Without it we would not have the successes in Irish sport that we have today.

'While obviously today we have many professional coaches and administrators at the highest level really we should always remember that they can only operate at the level they do given the many volunteers who still give so freely of their time at all levels of Irish sport.'

Strange/Bizarre/Quirkie News.

 

AQUILLA, Ohio - Jimmy Grey says he's been out of work
for almost a year and needed a project to stay busy. So
with the heavy snowfall this winter, the 25-year-old
laborer got to work on an extreme igloo in his family's
yard in Aquilla (ah-KWIL'-uh), about 30 miles east of
Cleveland.

His four-room creation has 6-foot ceilings and an
entertainment room. He powers the TV with an extension
cord plugged into an outlet in the garage. He also ran
wires for cable television with surround-sound stereo.

Grey says candles help add ambiance for nighttime get-
togethers with friends, and the freezing temperatures
mean that the beer never goes warm.

 

 


True Story

Taking A Bite Out Of Shark Statistics

More than 90% of shark attack victims survive.  

Every year, as waters around the coast warms up, people
flock to beaches all over the world, with a wary eye on
the water for a triangular fin headed towards them.
Whether it is a news story or memories of the film
'Jaws', swimmers are leery of putting themselves in the
way of becoming lunch for one of the many species of
sharks that inhabit the world's oceans. But do they
really need to worry?

Shark attacks on humans have been recorded for the last
500 years, and in intense detail over the last few
decades, thanks to such partnerships as the American

Elasmobranch Society and the Florida Museum of Natural
History. The society, comprised of over 4,000
professionals in the field of shark, ray and skate
study, has worked with the museum to compile several
centuries of reports, including diaries, news stories,
personal statements, medical reports, and autopsies.

The general theory is that a shark's brain is a
relatively simply one causing it to react to signals
that appear to be danger or food, without considering
the outcome or consequences. When it is stimulated,
hungry, or even bored, it will hone in on things that
move within its field of vision, or will swim off to
investigate the vibrations from a moving object, be it
human or motorized boat. Any resulting attacks are
consequently believed to be simple reaction to
stimulus, supported by the fact that sharks seldom
continue the attack to destroy or consume their
victims. Once discovered not to be their usual diet, a
shark leaves the 'prey', resulting in a survival rate
of over 90% for shark bite victims.

 

True Story 2.   

 

Right On, Rosemary

 

Studies have shown that the scent of Rosemary can help
in better mental performance and make individuals feel
more alert.  

Romantic as it may seem, the herb we know as Rosemary
wasn't named for some long-forgotten love. It comes
from the Latin 'rosmarinus', which is literally
interpreted as 'dew of the sea'.

A woody herb, it grows in the harsher Mediterranean
climate, surviving in high temperatures with little
water. As a member of the mint family, it grows well
and heartily, sometimes reaching heights of 4-5 feet,
and is so dense in branches and leaves, that the plants
have been used as topiary forms and are clipped into
shapes.

Prized for its colorful blossoms and pleasing scent,
the rosemary plant has been used for medicinal purposes
almost as long as records exist for such things.
Although popular to treat rheumatism, headaches,
epilepsy and poor circulation, its chief claim to fame
was as a stimulant, something that has been reconfirmed
in modern studies.

A study conducted in the UK, using 144 volunteers,
placed them in cubicles to work, with either a scent-
free environment, the scent of rosemary, or the scent
of lavender. Those in the rosemary cubicles performed
better, and reported feeling more alert and capable of
working. Those in a scent-free environment ranked
second, and the lavender-scented cubicle occupants came
in last, re-confirming not only rosemary's reputation,
but lavender's for its sedative effects.

Saint Patrick's Day Jokes 

The Irish attempt on Mount Everest was a valiant effort, but it failed: They ran out of scaffolding.

1) Big Rock

An Irishman, by the name of O'Malley proposed to his girl on St. Patrick's Day. He gave her a ring with a synthetic diamond. The excited young lass showed it to her father, a jeweller. He took one look at it and saw it wasn't real.

The young lass on learning it wasn't real returned to her future husband. She protested vehemently about his cheapness.
'It was in honour of St. Patrick's Day,' he smiled.
'I gave you a sham rock.'

2) How to Gain Admittance to the Olympics

An Englishman, a Scotsman and an Irishman were without tickets for the opening ceremonies of the summer Olympics but hoped to be able to talk their way in at the gate. Security was very tight, however, and each of their attempts was met with a stern refusal.
While wandering around outside the stadium, the
Englishman came upon construction site, which gave him an idea. Grabbing a length of scaffolding, he presented himself at the gate and said, 'Johnson, the pole vault,' and was admitted.

The Scotsman, overhearing this, went at once to search the site. When he came up with a sledge hammer, he presented himself at the gate and said, 'McTavish, the hammer.' He was also admitted.

The Irishman combed the site for an hour and was nearly ready to give up when he spotted his ticket in. Seizing a roll of barbed wire, he presented himself at the gate and announced, 'O'Sullivan, fencing.'

3) Judgement

The local District Judge had given the defendant a lecture on the evils of drink. But in view of the fact that this was the first time the man had been drunk and incapable, the case
was dismissed on payment of twenty euros costs.

'Now don't let me ever see your face again,' said the Justice sternly as the defendant turned to go.
'I'm afraid I can't promise that, sir,' said the released man.
'And why not?'.

'Because I'm the barman at your regular pub.'

4) Irish Doctors

The Doctor was puzzled 'I'm very sorry but I can't diagnose your trouble, O'Flaherty. I think it must be drink.'
'Don't worry about it Dr Cullen, I'll come back when you're sober.' said O'Flaherty.

 

Run Home

Two boys were playing baseball. The pitcher threw the
ball and the batter connected with a crack. 'Wow!' said
the pitcher, 'It's a run-home!'

'You mean a home run,' said the batter.

'No, I mean a run-home,' said the pitcher. 'You just
hit the ball through the neighbour’s window!'

Something to Look Forward To.

A group of 40 years old friends discussed where they should meet for
dinner.

Finally it was agreed upon that they should meet at the Ocean View
restaurant because the waitress's there had low cut blouses and were
very young.

10 years later at 50 years of age, the group once again discussed where
they should meet for dinner. Finally it was agreed that they should meet
at the Ocean View restaurant because the food there was very good and
the wine selection was good also.

10 years later at 60 years of age, the group once again discussed where
they should meet for dinner. Finally it was agreed that they should meet
at the Ocean View restaurant because they could eat there in peace and
quiet and the restaurant had a beautiful view of the ocean.

10 years later, at 70 years of age, the group once again discussed where
they should meet for dinner. Finally it was agreed that they should meet
at the Ocean View restaurant because the restaurant was wheel chair
accessible and they even had an elevator.

10 years later, at 80 years of age, the group once again discussed where
they should meet for dinner. Finally it was agreed that they should meet
at the Ocean View restaurant because they had never been there before.

Boom!

Tons of cash comes sliding back  across the table.

The man takes his winnings  and
buys the best room in the  Hotel.

He sits the frog down and  Says,

'Frog, I don't know how to repay  you.
You've won me  all this money and
I am forever  grateful.'

The  frog replies,

'Ribbit Kiss Me.'
He figures why  not,

Since  after all the frog did for Him,

He deserves  it.

With a kiss, the frog turns into  a
gorgeous waitress.

'And that,

my dear, is how the  girl
ended up in my  room.
 So help me God
Or my name is not Tiger Woods.!
Thanks to Leo Kennedy  for the above two.

Bank Loan

A Chinese walks into a bank in New York City and asks for the loan
officer. He tells the loan officer that he is going to Taiwan on business
for two weeks and needs to borrow $5,000.

The bank officer tells him that the bank will need some form of security
for the loan, so the Chinese hands over the keys to a new Ferrari parked on
the street in front of the bank. He produces the title and everything
checks out.

The loan officer agrees to accept the car as collateral for the loan.
The bank's president and its officers all enjoy a good laugh at the
Chinese for using a $250,000 Ferrari as collateral against a $5,000 loan.
An employee of the bank then drives the Ferrari into the bank's underground
garage and parks it there.

Two weeks later, the Chinese returns, repays the $5,000 and the interest,
which comes to $15.41.
The loan officer says, 'Sir, we are very happy to have had your business,
and this transaction has worked out very nicely, but we are a little
puzzled. While you were away, we checked you out and found that you are a
multi-millionaire. What puzzles us is, why would you bother to borrow
$5,000?'

The Chinese replies: 'Where else in New York City can I park my car for
two weeks for only $15.41 and expect it to be there when I return?'
