Annette Clarke (Galway)

Annette Clarke has worked in the engine room of Galway football for the past decade producing fantastic display after fantastic display for the Tribeswomen.

The Kilkerrin Clonberrin club member is a two time TG4 All Star having last being selected on the elite XV in 2013.

Annette is one of the top ranking midfielders in the country who combines a tireless work ethic with defensive awareness and an eye for a score. She is also her county’s penalty taker and rarely passes up an opportunity from the spot as she proved during the recent TESCO Homegrown Division 2 League Final where she slotted home two spot kicks against Waterford.

She has already been selected on the 2014 TESCO Homegrown Division 2 Team of the League following a League campaign where Galway achieved promotion to Division 1 which will be a great boost as they plan their assault on a third Connacht title in a row as well as the long term aim of a return to Croke Park where Annette would be hoping to win a second TG4 All Ireland title.

Briege Corkery (Cork)

One of the most dynamic players in the game, the 2014 Cork captain is truly a wonderful player. She plays the game at top speed from first minute to last and displays every skill perfectly in the process.

Briege is also a brilliant camogie player winning All Ireland’s with Cork in both codes. The St. Val’s club player was chosen as Player’s Player of the Year in 2012 and has picked up no fewer than 7 All Star Awards and 8 All Ireland titles in 9 years.

Briege is a fantastic leader and role model both on and off the pitch.

Sinead Goldrick

Sinead Goldrick is the current captain of the Dublin Ladies Football Team and is a current, 2 time All Star. The Foxrock Cabinteely star player has been a leading player for Dublin since her emergence onto the Dublin panel several years ago.

Sinead is an extremely versatile player that is equally comfortable in defence and attack and has won an All Star as a midfielder as well as this year, as a centre half back.

Although she lines out as a defender more often than not it is her driving runs from the heart of the Dublin defence that launch many of their heart attacks whilst she is often tasked to subdue the oppositions main attacker.

She has also enjoyed success with her club, Foxrock Cabinteely who she lead to Dublin County Championship glory in 2012.


Sharon Courtney (Monaghan)

Sharon Courtney is one of the top defenders in Ladies Football. She has continuously proven herself as a defensive lynchpin for her native Monaghan and also for one of the country’s most famous club sides, Donaghmoyne.

Operating mainly from full back Sharon has also proven herself to be more than comfortable when the opportunity to break forward presents itself.

Although she is a fantastic team player she has also been recognised for her individual achievements as she has won 3 All Star awards in 2008, 2010 and again in 2013. She also captained her beloved Monaghan to the 2012 National League Division 1 title.

Cora Staunton (Mayo)

Cora Staunton has been one of the top performing Ladies Gaelic Footballers over the past decade and a half and she is also one of the most decorated players ever to play the game.

The deadly attacker is arguably the most skillful player ever to take the field and has amassed huge scoring totals as a free taker and as a free-scoring forward from play.

In 2013 Cora was honored with her 9th All Star Award after yet another fantastic season in the green and red of her native Mayo, her scoring exploits were a major reason for her county reaching the 2013 Division 1 TESCO Homegrown NFL Final.

She capped off a memorable 2013 by claiming her 5th TESCO Homegrown All Ireland Club Title with her beloved Carnacon, ending the game with a personal tally of 1-02.
