UCC Sports Star Awards

Next Monday night (04th April), the River Lee Hotel hosts the annual UCC Sports Star Awards.

This event recognises 10 sportswomen and men who excelled in their chosen sport(s) during the 2015/16 season while also achieving academically.

Previous winners of this event include Ailis McSweeney (athletics), Tommy Walsh (hurling) and Paul Wallace (rugby).

We will have a very special guest on the night and will also present the Kieran Dowd Special Achievement Award to somebody who has given sterling service to UCC Sport over the last quarter century.
