Wednesday, 10th January, 2018 5:00pm

It was a year to remember for Knocknagree who were crowned Cork and Munster Junior Football champions in 2017. For his outstanding contribution to his club's success, Anthony O'Connor is the December winner of the 96FM/C103 Sports Star of the Month.

The final award of the year to be presented, Anthony was instrumental in Knocknagree's county and provincial success, and is the first member of the Duhallow-based club to win the award.

Speaking at the presentation, Cork County Board Chairperson Tracey Kennedy congratulated Anthony and his teammates. “You restored the joy to Cork football with the manner in which you played and I was delighted to see your success. Your Munster win was hugely significant as you broke the stranglehold that Kerry had held in that championship and Anthony's performance in the Munster Final really caught the eye.”

Joined by members of his team, family and backroom staff including manager John Fintan Daly, Anthony was presented with his award at Rochestown Park Hotel by Sales Manager Diarmuid Vaughan and 96FM/C103 Managing Director, Kieran McGeary. Anthony will be one of 12 nominees for the Sports Star of the Year Award which will be presented at a function at the hotel in February.
