Planning for 2014 awards has already started - see also 2013 awards night video
Planning has already begun for the 2014 Meath Sports Awards only a week after a packed Knightsbrook Hotel in Trim greeted jockey Barry Geraghty as the 2013 Meath Chronicle / Cusack Hotel Group Sportsperson of the Year with a standing ovation while Cushinstown athlete Elizabeth Morland took the young sportsperson accolade.
RTE's Evanne Ni Chuilinn was the host for the glittering evening at Knightsbrook when 22 of Meath's top sportsmen and women were honoured in a wide category of sports.
The first contender for the 2014 awards will be announced in the 8th February edition of the Meath Chronicle when the winner of the January award will be announced.
The extra categories will be retained for 2014 with the young sportsperson likely to generate enormous interest and like last year, members of the public may nominate in that category through email@example.com
The outstanding achievement category will also be a much-sought after nomination and the inaugural winner, Noel Meade, will be on hand to make the presentation again - he missed last week's event as he was attending a family function to mark the 100th birthday of his mother Agnes.
A story that also featured in the current edition of the Meath Chronicle.
