Crazy about Connacht!

A super September in which Connacht won three All-Ireland titles has led the judges in the Connacht GAA Writers Personality of the Month Award to share the September award between three of the province’s top sportspeople.   Galway pair John Lee and Damien Redington are honoured for their roles in the county’s All-Ireland U-21 hurling and minor football triumphs.    Leitrim stalwart Maeve Quinn helped her county bridge a 19-year gap since they last won an All-Ireland ladies football title. In 1988, it was the Junior title, and this year they went a step further by taking the Intermediate trophy.     The monthly award winners will receive their presentations at a special function in the TF Royal Theatre and Hotel, Castlebar, after the season is over, at which the Michael McDonnell Award for the Personality of the Year will be announced.
