Aherne named 'The Croke Park' Player of the Month

Dublin’s Sinead Aherne has been named as ‘The Croke Park’ Player of the Month for August. The ace full forward has been Dublin’s main attacker all season and was instrumental in securing their progress through to the TG4 All Ireland Finals on September 25th in Croke Park.

Aherne was vital for Dublin as they came under pressure against a resilient Donegal team in the TG4 All Ireland Semi Final where her 1-06, all but three points of which were from play, was vital as Dublin held on to win by three points. Aherne was back to her very best in the thrilling TG4 All Ireland semi final against Mayo when it was her last gasp pointed free that secured the 1 point win for Dublin. Sinead scored all but 4 points of Dubln’s 2-10 tally in that match and, for the second successive match, she was named as the player of the match for her exploits.


Sinead plays her club football for St. Sylvester’s and is already a 4 time All Star.
