2004 Young Players of the Year Announced for
Ladies Football

The 2004 Ladies Football Young Players of the
Year have been announced. Every year a player
from each province under the age of 16 is chosen
for outstanding performances for club and county.
All four winners will receive a presentation on
the night of the All-Stars ceremony on Saturday,
November 20th in CityWest.

The winners are as follows:

Leinster – Fiona Hudson (Fingallions, Dublin)

The Fingallions player captained Dublin to their
first U-14 All-Ireland title in 2004. Fiona was
player of the match in the All-Ireland U-14 final
and is one of the brightest prospects to come
out of the capital for quite some time. She has
been inspirational for her club and county all

Ulster – Caitriona McConnell (Donaghmoyne, Monaghan)

Although only 14, Caitriona will feature for Ulster
Club Champions Donaghmoyne this weekend in the
All-Ireland Club semi-finals. A superb left footed
player, she is a dedicated trainer and is seen
as one of the most outstanding young players the
county has produced in many years and looks certain
to be part of the Monaghan set up next season
and for many years to come.

Connacht – Therese Marren (Curry, Sligo)

Another 14 year old, Therese has played at every
level for Sligo. A national skills winner at the
2003 Feile, the Curry girl has also been inspirational
for her club and school St Attractas in Tubbercurry
who reached the Connacht finals at senior and
junior level. For such a young player, she was
still one of Sligo’s most effective forwards in
their march to Croke Park this year to the junior

Munster – Laura Power (Beara, Cork)

16 year old Laura from Beara in Cork is just one
of several talented young players to come out
of Cork. Despite being only 16, she has already
won two All-Ireland minor titles to go with her
three All-Ireland U-14 titles and two All-Ireland
U-16 titles. Now an integral part of the Cork
senior team, she won a Munster Championship with
the county this year.
