The cream of Tipperary sportsmen and women were honoured at the Annerville Sports Awards in the Clonmel Park Hotel.
Among them were All Ireland champions, national champions and Olympic hopefuls.

He is a former winner of the United Sports Panel's soccer award in 1972.
The Lifetime Achievement award went to Thurles athletics stalwart Patsy Dorney.
