The Skoda Sheehy Motors/Leinster Leader monthly Sports Award for September, for the first time, saw joint winners being honoured.

From the world of golf, Cill Dara Golf Club who captured the prestigious Jimmy Bruen All Ireland Trophy was recognised. Played at Carton House, Cill Dara defeated Athenry 3 and 2 in a nail biting final that went all the way to the 19th hole in the final game.

Club captain, Seán de Paor congratulated team manager Ger Hall and all members of the successful squad on an absolutely brilliant victory.

Meanwhile the Kildare Ladies footballers were making their very own piece of history when winning the Ladies Intermediate All Ireland final, defeating Clare by a single point, 1-13 to 1-12.

Congratulations to manager Alan Barry, his management team and the entire Kildare Ladies squad, led by team captain Aisling Holton.
