The list includes an number of inspirational people such as 89-year-old Geraldine Ryan, who normally travels huge distances weekly to teach Irish dancing in rural areas in Australia, founder of Gaelscoil London and Gaelic Voices James McDonald to Paul Rowley, who is the development co-chairman to the largest GAA club outside of Ireland - Rockland GAA in the US.
