Congratulations Kelley:

Roscommon LGFA would like to extend its congratulations to current minor county panellist and Clann na nGael player Kelley Colgan who received her Connacht LGFA young player of the year for 2017 at the recent TG4 All-stars banquet in the City west hotel in Dublin held last weekend.

Kelley was a star for the Roscommon team that reached the U16 A Connacht final this year against Galway and the all-Ireland semi-final against Kildare. Kelley’s displays at midfield and centre forward were exceptional and this award ensures due recognition of her efforts. Kelley who’s a huge fan of mayo’s Cora Staunton, attends our Lady’s Bower convent in Athlone with whom she won a Leinster schools title in 2015. She was also a member of the Roscommon U14 and U16 provincial winning teams of the past few years and she was a leading light on the all-conquering Clann na nGael U14 team that captured All-Ireland national Feile honours in 2015. At Club level Kelley has 13 county medals with Clann na nGael.
