So it’s now time for all sporting organisations to submit their successes at county, provincial and national level as well as achievements abroad.
The deadline for nominations is Friday 22nd November.
Donegal Sports Star Award Chairperson Grace Boyle said that 2019 had been another successful year for sport in the county.
“There has been loads of sporting achievements by individuals and teams from Donegal right through this year,” she said.
“I would now ask sporting organisations and others to make sure that nominations are made to recognise the really great successes that we have all witnessed during 2019. It’s not all about success we also acknowledge the volunteerism that goes on behind the scenes that helps make clubs and individuals successful.”
Last year, excluding the schools section there were in the region of 35 categories and it’s expected to be around the same number this time around.
The Hall of Fame inductee will be chosen by the Donegal Sports Star Awards committee so no nominations are being taken for this category.
Donegal County Council are once again the exclusive sponsors of the Awards.
The Cathaoirleach Cllr Nicholas Crossan and the Local Authority’s Chief Executive Seamus Neely are also encouraging all sporting organisations to get their nominations in before Friday, 22nd November.
