Minor star Turnbull wins August award

Thursday, 21st September, 2017 9:24am

Cork minor hurler Brian Turnbull has been named the 96FM/C103 GAA Sports Star of the Month Award winner for August.

The award, in association with the Rochestown Park Hotel, was given to Turnbull, one of the stars of Cork’s All-Ireland campaign who was particularly lauded for his semi-final performance against Dublin this year. Struggling with injury, he still managed to notch 0-13 in the match followed by 1-4 in the final.

Brian was presented with the award last week and said of his win: “I am delighted to be here today as it was a very special year, thrilled to be honoured and thanks to all who helped me during the year, especially my parents and coaches at club and county.”

County Board Irish Officer Jerry Walsh was also pleased with his players' win. “I am particularly pleased to be here to acknowledge a quality player part of a great team who gave us so much enjoyment all year and certainly deserved everything that came their way and their efforts deserved an All-Ireland. My thanks to all who worked so hard all year and heartiest congratulations to Brian and our thanks to the sponsors for their continued promotion of our games.”

Brian was accompanied by family and friends including members of his club Douglas. The overall winner will be announced at a gala banquet in February.
