The final award of the night was the closely guarded secret - probably more 'hush hush' than the Oscars - which was preceded by silence and bated breadth, before erupting into loud cheers when the nomination went to Youghal AC's Grace Rooney, who, judging by the reception, was a popular and endorsed choice.
