UCC’s IFDA Award 2018 WINNERS
Huge congratulations to our 3 IFDA Award winners!
03/11/2018 | The Irish Flying Disc Association (IFDA) held its annual Awards Ball on Saturday the 3rd in Dublin. The awards aim to recognise the stand-out members of Irish Ultimate over the past year. 3 of our nominees came out on top in their respective categories (4 if you include alumni)!
Our chairperson David O’Shea was recognised for OUTSTANDING CONTRIBUTION TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF IRISH DISC SPORTS! After all of his hard work in the past year, the award was well deserved. Dosh acted as our unofficial Schools Coordinator last year and his hard work was also recognised by the UCC Sports Executive (Fresher of the Year!!).
Kate Crowley, last year’s Ladies Captain, was FEMALE COLLEGE PLAYER OF THE YEAR! Kate captained the UCC ladies to TWO IVs finals (champions of Women’s Outdoors 2018, silver in Women’s Indoors 2017) and was MVP of the final for Outdoors.
IFDA PHOTO OF THE YEAR was a brand new category introduced by the IFDA to recognise the work that photographers put in to promote the sport. Our own PRO Meghan Choy was the first ever recipient of the award with this fantastic shot from Dublin’s Golden Cup in August!

Well done to all!
