Appreciation Award – Gerry Hannon

Gerry has been involved with Letterkenny Blaze Basketball since it was founded in 1999. Gerry has mentored and supported all of our younger referees and table officials both in Letterkenny Blaze and elsewhere.  His help and advice has been invaluable to them as they have developed in their role. As a referee, he has always been professional and fair. As well as sharing his wealth of knowledge with developing referees, he also helps and advises younger players and coaches in the rules of the game. His enthusiasm for the game of basketball always shines through  –  a true gentleman.
