'Baby' Craig Dowling (Carlow) and James 'Jack' Conroy (Meath) were both awarded sports awards for their exceptional International performances in 2014 by their local communities last week. Craig, Ireland's top goal scorer at the Amputee World Cup in Mexico, was presented with the sports award for December by the Carlow Nationalist. James received an Outstanding Achievement award from the Meath Chronicle for his heroics between the posts for the IAFA in 2014. Both players rubbed shoulders with their respective counties' elite athletes on their awards nights, flew the flag for Irish Amputee Football and further raised the profile of the sport in Ireland, spreading word of the fantastic achievements of the International squad in the past year. The IAFA would like to congratulate both players on their well deserved awards, awards that will undoubtedly be the first of many for these two dedicated and committed individuals.
