The Donegal Democrat in conjunction with Liam Mailey Trophies are presenting a monthly sport award to one of the up and coming sports teams or individuals in Donegal.
The award marks a special achievement by a team or individual at youth level in all sports. The award will also cover school sports, both individual and team.
It is hoped that the monthly presentation will be a worthy reward for the sporting youth of Donegal, who regularly compete at the top level of Irish sport.
