Celtic Challenge - Best & Fairest Award

Aside from a packed schedule of matches, the Celtic Challenge also features a number of new initiatives on trial for the first time Gaelic games, including the 'Best & Fairest Award'.

The 'Best & Fairest Award' is an alternative approach to the traditional 'Man of the Match' awards. The concept is age-appropriate and is underpinned by the GAA Values of Respect and Teamwork.

After every match the Referee will consult with his Match Officials and chose one player from each team to receive the 'Best & Fairest Award' on the basis that they:

  • Displayed a high level of skill and endeavour;
  • Displayed respect towards Match Officials;
  • Displayed respect towards fellow players;
  • Displayed respect toward the Playing Rules.

At the end of the Celtic Challenge one of the listed players will be selected at random and receive two tickets for the All Ireland Senior Hurling Final.

This page will be updated with the list of players who receive a 'Best & Fairest Award'.
