The GAA-GPA and Camogie Association All-Star awards banquets have both been cancelled due to Covid-19.

It's the second year in succession that the events have been impacted by the pandemic, with a scaled-down GAA event held at RTÉ studios last February to mark the 2020 season, the 50th year of the awards, and a virtual camogie event taking place in March.

This season’s GAA event was due to take place on Friday, 10 December at Croke Park, but instead RTÉ Two will now broadcast an awards programme from 7pm.

"Due to the ongoing challenges with Covid, the GAA, and the GPA, along with partners PwC, have taken the decision to cancel this year’s All-Star, Joe McDonagh Cup TOTY and Champion 15 TOTY banquet originally planned for the CCD on Friday, 10 December," the GAA said.

"This decision has been taken with health and safety in mind."

The camogie awards had been due to take place at the Osprey Hotel in Kildare on 26 November.

"While we appreciate the disappointment of all who were planning to attend, this decision has been taken with the health and safety of all in mind," said the Camogie Association.

"The Camogie Association look forward to holding The 2021 All-Stars Awards in 2022 when the opportunity presents."

The ladies football All-Stars were held last weekend.

All-Ireland champions Tyrone have 15 players included in the football nominations for the All-Stars, with 11 different counties represented in all.

In hurling, All-Ireland champions Limerick have 15 nominations, with nine counties among the nominees.

Champions Galway have 12 nominations in the camogie shortlist.

Regrettably we wish to advise that a decision has been made to cancel the 2021 Horse Racing Ireland Awards evening on December 7th due to the current COVID-19 situation and the uncertainty it presents.

We will host a virtual Awards ceremony instead, and will be producing a programme that will be broadcast on Racing TV later in December.
