Gradaim speisialta a thugann aitheantas do ghaiscí eisceachtúla. I mbliana bhí an gradaim seo tuillte go maith ag Ciara agus Lee. The 2017 Sports Award was presented to All-Ireland winning captain Michael Ó Gríofa.
A special award in recognition of outstanding achievements. Lee’s selection on the Galway minor football panel which contested the 2016 All-Ireland final set the year off to an exciting start.
