Race is on for coveted Sport Star of the Year title
THE search is on for the Fingal Independent / Clarion Hotel Dublin Airport Sport Star of the Year for 2012.
Below are the monthly winners so far who will be in contention for the overall prize at the annual gala awards ceremony at the splendid Clarion Hotel Dublin Airport next January.
A superb 2011 season saw promising young golfer Caolan Kennedy scoop the overall title last year, while recent Olympic torch bearer, Gary O'Brien won the Young Sport Star of the Year title for his Special Olympics heroics in Greece. Competition for the 2012 awards promises to be just as hot if the list of monthly winners below is anything to by. Each month we will select a new Sport Star to join the list of contenders below and four wild card entries will be selected at the end of the year to make up 16 grand finalists, all of whom will be hoping to follow in Caolan and Gary's footsteps.
