Roscommon Nurse Wins Prestigious Award at INMO Annual Delegate Conference 13.05.16
Press Release

Ms Mary Freeman, a recently retired Respiratory Clinical Nurse Specialist at Roscommon County Hospital, received the prestigious Gobnait O’Connell Award at the recent Annual Delegate Conference of the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation (INMO) in Killarney. Mary was nominated for this award, which commemorates the late Gobnait O’Connell, by her nursing colleagues in the Roscommon Branch. The award is presented annually in memory of Gobnait, who died tragically in a car accident some years ago, in recognition of her contribution to nursing and midwifery in Ireland.
This award is given every year to a local representative who has given great service to the Organisation in a manner which seeks to enhance the interests and welfare of their local colleagues.

Mary is a long time stalwart of the INMO’s Roscommon Branch and is a most deserving winner as, for those who know her will readily agree, her energy is boundless, her enthusiasm never ending and her professionalism unquestionable

Mary received her award, at an awards dinner on Thursday evening, May 5th.

Speaking following the award INMO General Secretary, Liam Doran said:

“Mary is one of the most loyal and dedicated members of the INMO it has been my privilege to meet.  She is a true professional, portraying a calm demeanour and has always made herself available to listen to members. She has been a steadfast member of the INMO who worked quietly behind the scenes for members.

She has shown incredible commitment to the Organisation and to the members she represented.  The award is a fitting tribute to Mary who has just retired from nursing. She truly deserves this award and I thank her sincerely, on behalf of all of us in the INMO, for her sterling work for both members and patients.  She will be missed by all who knew and worked with her.”
