The 2017/18 Connacht Rugby Awards took place at The Galmont Hotel & Spa in Galway City on Sunday night, as a season of achievements were recognised all the way from grassroots to green shirts.

There were 16 honours up for grabs in all, ranging from the underage categories to the coveted Club of the Year and Players’ Player of the Year.
