Who is your Coach of the Year?

The Translink Ulster GAA Coach of the Year Award is designed to recognise those coaches who, through exceptional commitment to the teaching and development of Gaelic games, put players, club and community first.

Following a call for nominations, a record number of submissions were received from clubs across the province. The standard was exceptionally high and reinforced the incredible standard of coaching and level of commitment which is on display on training fields across Ulster.

Our panel of judges including Down Manager Paddy Tally and Irish News Sports Correspondent, Neil Loughran, had the difficult task of selecting a shortlist. After much deliberation, they have chosen one worthy finalist from each county in the province. With nine finalists up for the award, selecting an overall winner is no easy task – which is why we need your help!

Vote Now!

Following public nominations, an independent judging panel has selected the finalists below for the Translink Ulster GAA Coach of the Year award – now it’s over to you to get behind your coach and have the final say! The winner will receive free coach travel for one year for their club team and a specially commissioned Coach of the Year jacket.
