Conor Reynolds, Emma McLaughlin & Leitrim Daily Sports Awards: Episode 176
So it’s the episode that half the county has been waiting for this week with the announcement of the winners of the Leitrim Daily Sports Awards. Breifne is also joined by Leitrim & Annaduff footballer Conor Reynolds and recent Connacht Championship winning captain Emma McLaughlin of St. Clare’s Comprehensive, Manorhamilton.
Conor Reynolds will be chatting about the mood in the camp ahead of a crunch league encounter with neighbours Longford and the progress of the season so far, getting to grips with some of the best forwards in the country against Roscommon, Derry and Cork and what his expectations for club and county will be this year.
Emma McLaughlin led her St. Clare’s Comp Ladies Footballers to the Connacht ‘C’ Championship on Monday with a 7-6 to 3-9 victory over Gortnor Abbey of Crossmolina, she’ll be telling us all about what’s involved in achieving success at that level with her North Leitrim & Cavan based school mates.
Finally it’s been a long time coming but after a mammoth reaction to our Sports Awards where over 1,400 of our listeners voted across the three categories on offer: Local, National and International.
Breifne is joined by Melvin Gaels and Leitrim Footballer Emlyn Mulligan, International Triathlete Donnacha Holmes and Shannonside FM’s Gaelic Games commentator Darren Mulvey to discuss the merits of each nominee and together with the results of the online poll to decide the winner in each category.
In what can best be described as a Eurovision style points battle, which person or team will emerge at the top of each category and will you agree with the decision.
Also a reminder that you can nominate any sports person or team for February’s Award and nominations can be made by anyone very easily in just a few minutes through our website at https://www.leitrimdaily.com/nomination/
