Con O’Callaghan Sweeps Up Young Sportstar of the Year Award & Team of the Year Award Alongside Dublin Teammates The eagerly anticipated and hotly contested Irish Independent Sportstar Awards 2017, in association with The Croke Park Hotel, took place Wednesday evening in the majestic Croke Park Stadium. The star-studded ceremony was attended by over 300 guests including many of the country’s most decorated sports stars as they celebrated another spectacular year for Irish sport, as narrated by the Irish Independent.Irish Racehorse Trainer Aidan O’Brien was the big winner on the night deservedly taking home the title of Sportstar of the Year after his world record breaking season on the track. Cuala and Dublin dual star Con O’Callaghan was named Young Sportstar of the Year, and the 21-year-old also picked up the accolade for Team of the Year alongside his Dublin Senior Men’s Football Panel teammates. The Team of the Year, a new addition to the awards shortlist, is voted for by the Irish public as are all of the awards, with the exception of the Hall of Fame.Irish sporting icon Sonia O’Sullivan was inducted into the illustrious Irish Independent Hall of Fame and, in second of two new awards this year, Galway hurler Joe Canning received the award for Magic Sports Moment for his part in the Tribesmen’s victory over Tipperary in the All-Ireland Semi Final.David Courtney, Head of Sport Content, Independent News & Media said: “We in the Irish Independent are honoured to celebrate yet another enthralling year for Irish sport. This is the 29th edition of the Irish Independent Sportstar Awards and an evening we look forward to each and every year. In Ireland, sport plays a huge part in our culture. It unites us. The passion, the energy, the emotion binds us as a nation, as a community. It is our privilege to support Ireland’s athletes across all sporting disciplines and from achievements at local level through to the world stage. But these awards would not be possible without our loyal readers and for that we are very grateful.”He continued: “The Irish Independent sports desk continuously seeks to deliver the best quality sports reporting to our readers. 2017 was another exceptional year for Irish sport and Irish athletes across the board and we have relished being in a position to showcase their achievements through our multiple platforms. As we celebrate the successes we also look forward to the future and the journey we will continue on together.”As well as the award winners, many recognisable faces and sporting heroes were in attendance at the gala event in Croke Park. Three-time Olympian Eamonn Coghlan was amongst the numerous athletics representatives including Catherina McKiernan. The most decorated GAA player in history Rena Buckely was joined by LGFA Player of the year Noelle Healy as well as other from both ladies football and camogie. Celebrating with him, Joe Canning’s teammate Conor Whelan relived their All-Ireland success whilst the same could be said for Dublin Senior Football Manager Jim Gavin as he watched his team take to the stage.

Three games into its debut season, Alab has been drawing packed crowds from Biñan, Laguna, to the Olivarez College Gym in Parañaque, where only last Sunday former two-time UAAP MVP Bobby Ray Parks Jr. exploded for a record 41 points in a 93-87 victory over the Kaohsiung Truth. Alab will also hold stops in Davao and Sta. Rosa, Laguna, for future home games as they continue to bring the team closer to the fans.Philippine teams have won the ABL twice, but the league has gone under the radar in what was supposed to be the hotbed of basketball in the region, following a forgettable season by the MX3 Kings last year. The Philippine Patriots ruled the inaugural season of the league in 2009, while the Beermen matched the feat in 2013. There was no Philippine team in the ABL in 2014.“We’ve been amazed by the turnout,” said Alab Pilipinas co-owner Charlie Dy. “The ABL has been around for seven years, but the turnout for Philippine [representative] teams wasn’t always like this.”Alab attracted 5,000 fans to its home opener at Alonte Gym in Biñan that ended with a 66-71 loss to the Singapore Slingers, before luring 3,000 at Baliwag Star Arena in Baliuag, Bulacan, for the second game—a 91-82 win over the Kaohsiung Truth.“We had to call in additional security because some fans destroyed the barriers outside the arena in Baliuag just to get in,” says Dy. “We are very happy with the support.”ADVERTISEMENT PH among economies most vulnerable to virus Shanghai officials reveal novel coronavirus transmission modes Chinese-manned vessel unsettles Bohol town MOST READ Parks has been the star of the show for Alab, averaging 30 points an outing in his first three games, a year after playing for the Texas Legends in the NBA D-League. “He’s helped us get the fans because a lot of people are interested in how much he has improved since his UAAP playing days,” Dy says of Parks.Dy admits getting sponsors to back the team is still a tough task, but they take solace in the fact that they’ve been able to establish strong links with the local government units where they play their games. Alab holds basketball clinics a day before each game for children in the community where they play. In return, the LGU allows the team to use the gym for free for their games.All of the Alab games are also shown live on ABS Sports and Action. “It’s a huge factor,” Dy says of the television aspect.While the league’s main thrust is to make basketball grow in the region, Ilagan says the presence of Alab as the Philippines’ representative has been a boost to the league. “The Philippines is always the barometer in terms of basketball in Southeast Asia,” says Ilagan, who is fresh off his first full season running the league.As the players of Alab obliged fans with selfies and autographs last Sunday, Ilagan can’t help but feel a sense of pride as the league finally made strides in his own country, after witnessing how it has impacted other teams in the region.“A turnout like this in the Philippines is really heartwarming,” says Ilagan. “A lot of credit goes to Alab and their approach [in getting fans].”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Smart’s Siklab Saya: A multi-city approach to esports LOOK: The first half Where did they go?
