Her Sport Awards take place on the 27th of January

The Her Sport Awards are back to celebrate and recognise the magnificent achievements of our sports stars, as well as the community volunteers and behind the scenes heroes that make the sports we love possible.

2023 was an unforgettable year in Irish sport. There were World Championship highs, athlete comebacks, a World Cup to remember and not to mention Olympic and Paralympic qualifications.
Irish sportswomen have captivated across the board with outstanding performances, brilliance on and off the playing field, some rising from the ashes and defying all odds.

The Her Sport Awards celebrate these inspirational Irish women in sport, in what has been a momentous year!

Niamh Tallon is the founder of Her Sport and she spoke to John Mulligan on Saturday Sport.
