Tipperary woman beats county senior hurlers to top award


A Tipperary woman was crowned the overall winner of the Beat South East Sports Star Awards on Thursday night at The Set Theatre in Langton House Hotel, Kilkenny.

May monthly nominee Amee-Leigh Murphy Crowe beat stiff competition to claim the overall award in what was a celebration of South East sporting success.

The 24-year-old was named Irish Women’s 7s Player of the Year for the third time in 2019, after becoming this year’s World Series leading try scorer – touching down an incredible 35 times.

“It’s such an honour to win the award ahead of so many amazing nominees. It’s a fantastic end to a phenomenal year. I’ve worked so hard with the Irish team who I must thank tonight as they’ve got me to where I am to today. I can’t wait to bring the trophy back to Tipp,” said Crowe.

Former world snooker champion Ken Doherty joined Beat Breakfast’s Vincent Bradley on stage as the special guest at the event.

The list of nominees, all voted for by the public in monthly online polls on beat102103.com, showcased the diverse array of sports that continue to thrive across Wexford, Carlow, Kilkenny, Waterford and South Tipperary.
