Professor Niall Moyna receives GAA President’s Award

Congratulations to Professor Niall Moyna who received a GAA President’s Award for his contribution to education at the weekend.

The annual GAA awards provide the GAA President with an opportunity to acknowledge outstanding commitment and long service across the club, and county network from people whose highly valued contribution may not be recognised on the national stage.

Niall Moyna, Professor and Head of the School of Health and Human Performance and a member of the Centre for Preventive Medicine in DCU, has studied and worked extensively in the US, has published more than 150 research papers and has brought this level of expertise to bear on the coaching and promotion of Gaelic games, both within DCU and further afield, with huge success. He has worked at inter-county level with numerous teams and assists the GAA in the preparation and training of match officials.
