SDCSP, together with The Echo newspaper, has organised an annual Amateur Sports Awards that recognises the effort and success of local sports individuals and teams, be that at local, national or international level.

Each month there is an award to a team and an individual. At the end of the year the 12 monthly team and individual winners are formally presented with their awards. There are also awards for Club of the Year, Coach of the Year, Club Development of the Year, Volunteer of the Year and a Hall of Fame award. The awards night finishes off with the overall crowning of the Team of the Year and the Sportsperson of the Year.

The breath of the awards from swimming to motor sport, GAA to gymnastics is a great reflection on the level of sport that takes place in South Dublin County. All the participants are ambassadors for what we are seeking to achieve and we are delighted to recognise their efforts.

If you think your team, club, coach or whoever has what it takes to be a winner then we would be delighted to hear from you. You can send a note outlining why to or
