WLRFM & Granville Hotel Sports Awards
WLR FM and the Granville Hotel are proud to announce the launch of the new WLR FM / Granville Hotel Monthly Sports Awards.
The awards replace the former WLR FM / Granville Hotel GAA Awards, with the accolades now extending to Waterford athletes who excel across all sporting codes.
Each month, an outstanding sports star will be crowned the winner of the monthly awards - before the 12 monthly recipients of the award then gather for a black-tie Gala Banquet at the Granville Hotel in January 2025, where Waterford’s first WLR / Granville Hotel Sports Star of the Year will be revealed.
The judging panel is comprised of GAA reporter and author Tomas McCarthy, Munster Express Sports Editor Catherine Power, Brid Golden of Athletics Ireland, commentator Ray Scott and Liam Cusack of the Granville Hotel - with WLR’s Jordan Norris serving as Chairperson.
Interviews with the winning athletes will be broadcast on WLR’s The Big Breakfast Blaa each month, and the recipients will be invited to a lunch at the Granville Hotel to accept their prizes.
The January and February winners of the new awards will be announced at a launch event in early March.
