The team reached their first Leinster Senior Football Semi Final since 1958 in June after they defeated Louth in their first game.

It brought the county of Carlow together and generated a huge amount of excitement and enthusiasm, something you can’t buy in the times we live in.

Even though the team still have the qualifiers to contend with, it was felt by the many people who nominated the team that it was fitting to award the Carlow Senior Football Team the Talbot Hotel and KCLR96FM “Sporting Heroes” Award for June 2011
