The MacNamee Awards are presented annually by the GAA in recognition of outstanding contributions made by individuals and Association units in the area of media and communications.

At the beginning of 2017,  Austin Stacks Hurling & Football Club’s  Executive was faced with the task of how best to celebrate the Club’s centenary year 1917-2017.

A club website simply called  ‘Stacks 100’ ( was commissioned to Rory Kirby and club members were encouraged to submit their old photographs, audio clips and video footage including clips of some of the clubs past achievements, interviews with former players  etc.

The 100 year club history was brought right up to date with interviews from current club executive members and video footage from some of their 2017 events including the club’s entry in the St. Patrick’s Day parade and their family fun day.

‘Stacks 100’  provides a unique audio visual patchwork incorporating all aspects of the clubs 100 year history which is relevant and can be enjoyed by all club members, young or old, male or female.

Austin Stacks Hurling & Football club will receive their award on Thursday, March 29 in Croke Park.
