It is Ganly’s second consecutive year to sponsor the awards which are organised in association with Longford Sports Partnership and the Longford Leader.

The format of the Ganly’s Longford Sports Star Awards will see a Sports Star of the Month selected each month for January to October.

A shortlist of nominees will be compiled for each month and these will be published in the Longford Leader. The monthly winner will then be chosen by you, the Longford public, in a series of votes conducted on the Longford Leader website, www.longfordleader.ie You will also be able to cast your vote via our social media platforms, Facebook and Twitter @Longford_Leader

Each of the monthly winners will be presented with a memento in recognition of their achievement and the ten monthly award winners (January to October) will also complete the shortlist for the coveted title of Overall 2018 Ganly’s Longford Sports Star of the Year.
