National Award for ‘Chick’ Deacy Programme

Honoured to say a match programme I designed and produced for the late great Eamonn Deacy Testimonial match has picked up the following award:

Kantar Media FAI Communications Awards
Best Publication

Editor -  Keith Kelly
Advertising Manager - Mike Daly
Designed by - Morgan O'Brien

"The souvenir matchday programme produced for the Eamonn ‘Chick’ Deacy testimonial game last August has picked up a top national award after being named as Programme of the Year by the FAI.

The programme was compiled and edited by Connacht Tribune journalist Keith Kelly, who was nominated for the Kantar Media FAI Communication Awards by West United for Best Publication for the 2012/13 season.

The 88-page programme was produced for the game between the Aston Villa Old Stars and a Galway United/West United selection which marked the official renaming of Terryland Park as Eamonn Deacy Park on August 18 last year.

The programme was designed by Morgan O’Brien and printed by Atlantic Print, while Mike Daly was advertising manager. Kelly will collect the award at the awards ceremony at the FAI Delegates pre-AGM Dinner in Arklow this Friday."
