Just a quick Monday morning update for you – imagine, the Monday morning match reports will soon be back once again – to give a brief mention of the annual Club Stars bash that took place on Friday night last.
Now in its eleventh year, the Club Stars awards – sponsored by the Mayo News and O’Neill’s – took place, as per usual, at the Knockranny Hotel in Westport. It was no surprise that county and now Connacht club champions Castlebar Mitchels scooped a fair few of the prizes on offer. Nine Mitchels lads were named on Club Stars Team of the Year, with two more of them featuring among the five replacements.
The major individual award – Championship Player of the Year – also went to Castlebar and it was won by wing-back Paddy Durcan. It caps a wonderful year for the 21 year-old, who over the course of 2015 has emerged as one of the county’s hottest prospects.
The full list of winners from Friday night’s awards is here. Congrats to all concerned.
