UCC Sports Star Awards 2016/2017
Two of our B.Ed. (Hons) Sports Studies and Physical Education students received the UCC Sports Star Award this year.
The ceremony took place on Thursday the 13th of April 2017 at the River Lee Hotel.
2nd year student Emma Barber was recognised with her first UCC Sports Star Award for her performances with UCC Hockey Club in the Munster Senior league. UCC went through the Munster League unbeaten and Emma played a crucial role in their success. UCC also competed in the Munster Senior Cup Final – losing out narrowly to Irish Senior Cup Finalists and EY League side Cork Harlequins. She is a member of the Irish U21 panel and is a UCC Sports Scholarship recipient.
4th year student Doireann O’Sullivan picked up her first award for helping the Cork Ladies Gaelic Football team retain their All-Ireland title last September in Dublin. Doireann played a major role in Cork’s continuing success last year. She captained the UCC team who were beaten in the O’Connor Cup final by University of Limerick. Doireann was awarded Player of the Final, scoring all of UCC’s points on the day. She was awarded an All-Star for her performances with Cork and, last weekend, was awarded an All-Star for her performances with UCC. Doireann is a UCC Sports Scholarship recipient.
