Walsh accepts another award
Wexford boxer Dean Walsh made the journey to the Mount Wolseley Hotel Spa and Golf Resort in Tullow, Co. Carlow, recently to collect his South East sports star award for August, 2015.
Walsh was honoured after claiming a bronze medal at the European elite championships in Bulgaria, and received his trophy from Irish soccer legend Packie Bonner who was the special guest M.C.
The awards celebrated the region's top sporting achievements of 2015.
Fourteen winners who were successful in a public vote when pitted against nominees from the other four counties of the south-east were honoured, with the overall prize going to Waterford rally driver Craig Breen.
The awards are returning again for 2016, and Beat 102-103 is now taking nominations from the public to honour their favourite sports star. Nominations can be made to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The presentation was made to Dean on the same weekend that he was selected as the Irish elite male boxer of the year, crowning a memorable few days.
