South East Sports Star Awards
Wexford’s senior and minor hurlers have been announced as joint recipients of the Beat 102-103 South East Sports Star Award for June.
Both county squads won their respective finals on Leinster final day at Croke Park, with both beating their Kilkenny opponents.
The seniors’ win ended a spell of fifteen years without a title, while the minors brought an end to a 34-year famine.
You can nominate your favourite sports star for the July award now.

The annual South East Sports Star Awards are the region’s biggest sports awards. Now running for over a decade, the awards recognise and celebrate the achievements of sports stars across the South East region.
Every month we ask sports fans to nominate a person or a club who they think are deserving of a monthly award. All you need to do is email [email protected] with a few lines about the person or team and why you think they deserve an award. A awards committee gathers all the nominees together and select five to go forward to the public vote – one from each South East county. The vote takes place on this very page for one week, and then the winner is announced on Beat Breakfast on the Friday morning of voting week. He, she or they then become a monthly winner of the South East Sports Star Award!
While these are first and foremost a public vote, the committee can on occasion name joint monthly winners to highlight two achievements that are equally deserving of recognition.
All these monthly nominations and awards lead up to the big event, the annual South East Sports Star Awards Night. Every monthly winner receive their awards on the night, and they are also the nominees for the South East Sports Star of the Year Award, which will be announced by our special guest MC and judging panel.
