Institute’s Hurlers Win Beat 102-103 South East Sports Star Award


Congratulations to the Institute of Technology GAA senior hurling team which has won the Beat 102-103 South East Sports Star Award for February.

The team, under manager DJ Carey, recently reached the Fitzgibbon Cup final for the first time in its history, building on their League Final win earlier in the year. The announcement was made on Beat Breakfast show last Friday.

The annual South East Sports Star Awards are the region’s biggest sports awards. Now in its 10th year, the awards recognise and celebrate the achievements of sports stars across the South East region. Previous winners include the Kilkenny senior hurling team, Kilkenny senior hurler and Institute student Kevin Kelly, and Wexford Youths soccer team.

Every month, sports fans nominate a person or a club they think are deserving of a monthly award. An awards committee collates the nominees and five are selected for a public vote – one from each county in the southeast.
