Clare’s double-winning All-Ireland hurling captain, Anthony Daly has been appointed Community Champion to the Clare Covid-19 Community Response Forum.
The appointment follows the nomination of Anthony Daly by Irish Rural Link (IRL) and The Wheel, both organisations working with the Department of Rural and Community Development.
Anthony expressed his “commitment to work with the Forum, its two sub-committees and the team supporting the Community Response”. He highlighted the importance of “working in partnership and co-operation with the various community and voluntary groups whose volunteers, at parish level, respond to those in need of shopping, prescriptions, meals and other assistance”.
In welcoming the new Community Champion, Cathaoirleach of Clare County Council, Clare Colleran Molloy, also praised the volunteers working locally and the collaborative approach of all organisations at county level seeking to serve the needs of vulnerable persons.
