First up was the Scotstown GAA club who took home the Cultural Award thanks in the main to work of Pauline and Mackie Rooney over the last 40 years in not only Scór but also the Irish language.
Next up was Senior County Manager Malachy O Rourke who fought off opposition from Sean Quigley, Fermanagh and Mickey Harte, Tyrone to win the Personality of the Year Award.
Finally Conor Mc Manus added another award to the trophy cabinet when he overcame Mattie Donnelly and Sean Quigley to become the first Monaghan winner of the Male Footballer of the Year since 2007. Co. PRO Noel Duffy was also nominated in the Communications Category an award that went to Fermanagh’s Pauric Mc Gurn.
