Juvenile Star Awards 2018


The young Irish stars of Track & Field enjoyed a great night of celebrations on Saturday night last when the Juvenile Star Awards Banquet took place in the Tullamore Court Hotel.

Recently retired Irish Athletics Team Manager Patsy McGonagle was the special guest speaker on the night and he delivered an inspirational talk for the young athletes prior to the awards ceremony. Athletics Ireland President Georgina Drumm also encouraged the young athletes to make the best of their talent.
