With Fridays deadline for receipt of nominations to this year’s Donegal Sports Star Awards looming, reigning Overall Winner Mark English is urging sporting organizations to get their nominations in.



Speaking this week, Mark English stressed the importance of all the county’s major team and individual successes being on the nominations list, which closes this Friday. The Irish Olympic athlete was speaking as he backed the committee’s final nominations push this week.



“I have been fortunate to win Donegal Sport Star Awards when I was at Primary and Secondary School and just to be in the same room then as senior sporting stars was great. I have also won the senior athletics category and being named the ‘Overall Winner’ in the last two years which was a great honour for me and it is very special to have my name there along with so many great stars of sport in Donegal. So I would ask the sporting organizations in the county to get the nominations in before the deadline this Friday” English said.



The deadline for nominations is this Friday, November 25th.  Nominations can be made online at or emailed to [email protected] or posted to Paul McDaid, Post Office, Ramelton. For further information check out Donegalsports Starawards on Facebook.
