A great night was had by a number of Ulster Gaels at the Ladies Gaelic Football TG4 All Star Awards on Saturday 9th November at a packed City West Hotel.  Ulster did well with 4 Monaghan players picking up All Star Awards namely the Courtney sisters Sharon & Cora as well as Grainne McNally and Caoimhe Mohan.  Cavan were also celebrating with Grainne Smith (pictured) picking up the Intermediate Players Player of the Year Award and Neasa Byrd collecting the Ulster Young Player of the Year Award.

Guests of the banquet were treated to a full night’s entertainment including as well as an inspirational speech from guest of honour Joanne O’Riordan.  Joanne has recently been the subject of the ‘No Limbs, No Limits’ documentary and has been a previous recipient of the ‘Young Person of the Year Award’ as well as having addressed the United Nations.
