Volunteer Recognition Programme

Munster Rugby


Acknowledge significant contributions made by individual volunteers who have developed, promoted, contributed and/or advanced the sport of Rugby.

To create awareness, encourage participation and lift the profile of volunteers in Rugby.


The Munster Rugby Volunteer Recognition Programme is a fantastic opportunity for your Club/School to acknowledge your loyal volunteers and to help raise the profile of rugby volunteers throughout the province.

Volunteers are the lifeblood of every sport and leisure organisation in Ireland. They contribute time and energy year after year to assist in the development of sport and leisure activities.

Without these people our clubs and organisations would cease to exist. Munster Rugby identifies the need to recognise and reward those individuals who have devoted their time by honouring them with a recognition programme.

The programme will reward and acknowledge the efforts of volunteers who devote countless hours week in week out, year after year to provide a safe and enjoyable environment at the grass roots level of the game.

From the kitchen worker to the weekend linesman to the parents that manage under-age sides, it is up to you to nominate worthy contributors.

The programme will run from October 2014 to May 2015 with a reward scheme consisting of individual “Volunteer of the Month” awards.

The Recognition Programme is open to any person currently associated with domestic rugby in Munster, in a non-paid capacity at a club, school, college, university or associated affiliate of the Munster Branch IRFU.


Successful nominees who meet the set criteria will be recognised for their efforts by receiving a prize package including tickets and pre-match hospitality for two to a Munster match.
