Derry Sinn Féin Councillor Eric McGinley has congratulated all the nominees and winners at the annual Council Sports Awards on Wednesday night.

Councillor McGinley said: “The annual Sports Awards organised by Derry City and Strabane District Council is an opportunity to showcase the achievements of our citizens across a wide array of sporting codes.

"The event provides proper recognition to many people, young and old, who compete or coach within the council area and is a fitting testament to the volunteer ethos which is at the core of this sporting participation.

"As a member of the Council’s Sports Committee I fully appreciate the work and effort carried out each and every year and I would like to congratulate all those nominated and those individuals and teams who were presented with awards at this event.”
