ACHILL Rovers representatives were presented with their Football Association of Ireland Club Mark award today.
The Club Mark programme is intended to help grassroots clubs throughout the country, and the award is based on best practice in the governance, management and administration of a club.
The presentation was made by FAI chief executive John Delaney at the official launch of the Club Mark programme. He said the introduction of the FAI Club Mark was the latest step in helping grassroots clubs around the country achieve their full potential.
“The FAI Club Mark will help lead to the improvement of standards in our clubs,” he added. “We will recognise the great work done by the clubs in their communities, and taking it to another level.
“We've over 2,000 clubs in the country of different sizes. The FAI Club Mark will help assist the clubs to improve their standards off the pitch.”
The two other clubs to receive their awards today were Donegal's Gweedore Celtic and Waterford's Park Rangers. For more information on the FAI Club Mark, visit www.fai.ie/domestic/fai-club-mark.
