Thomastown National School teacher Siobhan Condon has been honoured for her outstanding work for ladies football.

Siobhan is a sterling worker promoting the game in her school and with St. Ailbe's Emly Ladies Gaelic Football Club.

At the recent Ladies Gaelic Football volunteer awards she was honoured as the Committee Officer of the Year. 

Siobhan has brought her Ladies Football and coaching expertise to Thomastown School. The pupils have benefited from her tutelage and the school has benefited in recent years with numerous successes in the Tipperary Cumann na mBunscoil Competitions. 

Indeed the success of the school in no way reflects its size as the pupils have excelled in bringing silverware back to Thomastown that other larger schools can only marvel at.

(Thomastown NS open night  has been rescheduled to March 15th at 7.30) .

In 2015, Siobhan  joined the Tipperary Primary Games management team. This involves her coaching Primary School students to play an exhibition game at half time of the Munster Championship games which Tipperary are involved in

Siobhan spent most of her playing days playing camogie for Galbally in Co. Limerick. However, when St. Ailbe’s Emly Ladies Football Club was being revived in 2001, she was one of the members called to the meeting. 

Siobhan took on the role of  secretary and remained in that position for approximately thirteen years. While doing the administration for the club, Siobhan played for a number of years before she assumed the role of coaching. 

In 2011, she was elected as Assistant Secretary for Tipperary Ladies Football while continuing her secretarial role in the club. She managed both roles with such an ease, it was inevitable that she would continue to hold two secretary positions at the same time for the next six years.

 In 2012, Siobhan was elected as secretary for Tipperary Ladies Football and continued in this role until 2017. In November 2015, Munster Ladies Football elected her as secretary and she still holds that position. 

Siobhan is an asset to Ladies Football since 2001. St. Ailbe’s, Tipperary and Munster are all the better for the having her involvement. She has a proven track record in whatever she does whether administration or managing/coaching. Her quiet contribution and ethos to work are something all in her company strive to achieve and no matter what she works at, success is inevitable.
