There was a big night of celebration at Croke Park for the players that lit up this year’s inter-county competitions below the Senior All-Ireland level.
The GAA Champion 15 Awards took place last night as we honoured the players that excelled in the Ring, Rackard and Meagher cups, along with those that starred in the Joe McDonagh and Tailteann cups. #GAANOW was at the black-tie event in Croke Park – watch here!
