Before an appreciative and packed attendance Cork Camogie star Orla Cotter was named the overall winner of the 96FM/C103 GAA Sports Star of the Year at the Gala Banquet in the Rochestown Park Hotel. The St Catherine’s player received a standing ovation as she made her way to the stage a clear indication of the popularity of this most unassuming but very talented player. Orla was the September winner on the back of Cork retaining their All-Ireland senior Camogie title defeating old rivals Kilkenny, in dramatic fashion. The sides were level, time almost up, Cork awarded a free under the Hogan Stand, and despite the pressure Orla nailed it and the O’Duffy Cup was Leeside bound.
