Caltra Manager is January winner

Galway club Caltra Cuans, the newly-crowned All-Ireland junior ladies football champions, have been honoured in the Connacht GAA Writers Personality of the Month scheme, with the news that manager Gabriel Naughton has been named as the January winner.

Gabriel accepted the accolade on behalf of the entire club following their thrilling victory over Omagh St Enda’s in the All-Ireland final at Mullahoran, Co. Cavan. The club was formed just ten years ago and the victory complements the All-Ireland junior seven-a-side title captured last autumn.

The monthly award winners will receive their presentations at a special function in the TF Royal Theatre and Hotel, Castlebar, after the season is over. The winner of the Michael McDonnell Award for the Personality of the Year will also be announced on that night.
