Each year at the event, one former hurler and one former footballer are recognised.

Both will be presented with Lifetime Achievement awards for their outstanding contribution to their respective codes.

This year’s hurling award recipient is Galway’s John Connolly and the football accolade goes to Down’s Paddy Doherty.
