Kerry Legend Wins Outstanding Contribution to Sport 2019 Award

Former All Ireland winning Kerry captain Mary Geaney was presented with the Irish Times/Sport Ireland Outstanding Contribution to Sport 2019 Award.

The Castleisland woman captained Kerry to football success in 1976 – she scored 3-2 in the final win over Offaly, the first hat trick in a final. She also won two club football All-Irelands with Castleisland Desmonds in the early 1980s and represented Munster in the Inter-provincials.

Geaney was renowned for her involvement in a number of sports having represented her country in hockey and representing Munster in squash, badminton and golf, hence the recognition given to this amazing woman for her contribution to sport.

Everyone in the Ladies Gaelic Football Association would like to congratulate Mary on her award, so well deserved!
