Erone Fitzpatrick of Laois is The Croke Park/LGFA Player of the Month for June

LAOIS sharpshooter Erone Fitzpatrick has been honoured with The Croke Park/LGFA Player of the Month award for June 2022.

The 21-year-old Park-Ratheniska player has been in scintillating scoring form to date for the O’Moore County during the 2022 TG4 All-Ireland Intermediate Championship.

In-form Laois will play Clare next Sunday for a place in the TG4 All-Ireland Final – and Fitzpatrick’s form has been central to the team’s progress to date.

Erone has registered 4-9 from three outings to date, including 2-5 in June as Laois overcame the challenge of Tyrone in the group stages, before accounting for Wicklow in the quarter-finals.

Erone scored 1-2 in the fixture against Tyrone – and her magnificent solo goal went viral as Laois scored a significant victory over the Red Hands.

Erone followed up with a personal tally of 1-3 against Wicklow last time out, while she also provided a brilliant assist for a Sarah Anne Fitzgerald goal.

Erone, who suffered cruciate knee ligament damage in 2020 before making a full recovery, has already amassed some other memorable moments throughout her career to date.

She captained Scoil Chríost Rí to the Lidl All-Ireland Post Primary Schools A title in 2019, and she was a Yoplait O’Connor Cup winner with University of Limerick earlier this year.

Erone was presented with her award today by Ina Lazar, Sales Manager, The Croke Park.
