RTÉ Sports Awards 2014

2014 has seen fantastic sporting achievements by Irish teams and the RTÉ Sports Awards will be acknowledging the achievements of our sporting heroes.

A featured award tonight is the 2014 Team of The Year, and the responsibility for choosing the team of the year rests with you.

How the voting works

Six teams have been shortlisted by an RTÉ panel for their sporting performance and achievements in 2014. 

You can vote by text for your chosen team(s). The team to receive the most text votes will be crowned RTÉ Sport Team of the Year.

The six nominees for Team of the Year include the four All-Ireland winners from their respective codes in Gaelic Games: the Kilkenny hurlers, the Kerry footballers, the Cork Ladies Football team and the Cork Camogie side.

Dundalk FC have been nominated for winning the Airtricity League Premier Division and the Irish rugby team get their nomination after winning the 2014 Six Nations.
