To their word, Wexford GAA have honoured Wexford healthcare workers with the release of a new jersey…
A new Wexford GAA jersey that honours healthcare workers for their work during the Covid-19 pandemic has been unveiled.
“The Wexford GAA Strategic Plan sets out the target of shining the light on our local heroes and volunteers. In 2021 we wish to recognise Wexford health-care workers who during Covid 19 have continued to provide care for patients despite exhaustion, personal risk of infection, fear of transmission to family members, illness or death of friends and colleagues, and the sad loss of many patients. We are proud of our Wexford-based health care workers and those from our county who work in healthcare all over the world,” chairman Micháel Martin said.
The classy release has received a lot of plaudits on social media.
Wexford GAA hopes to release two similar jerseys over the next three years, where they honour specific groups of individuals.
In 2022, they’ll release a jersey that honours volunteers involved with grassroots GAA in Wexford, while in 2023, Wexford GAA will release a jersey with teachers’ names, who have actively promoted Wexford GAA in their schools, imprinted on the design.
