The Ladies Gaelic Football Association extends sincerest
sympathy to the family of Lulu Carroll, who died over the weekend.
Aged 35 and a member of the Timahoe club, Lulu was one of the
most popular figures in Ladies Football and she will be sorely
missed. Helen O’Rourke, the Chief Executive of the Ladies Gaelic
Football Association said: “Lulu was a committed servant to Ladies
Football at both club and County level and one of the most popular
and well known figures in Ladies Football. She will be remembered
as a great player lovely person. She battled bravely against illness
for so long but always maintained her high spirits throughout.

President of the GAA, Nicky Brennan presents
Lulu with a 2007 Presidents Award

She will be missed by everyone who had the pleasure
of meeting her.” Lulu won an All Ireland title with Laois in 2001
and eight Leinster titles. She also won six Senior County championships
and one Leinster senior club title with Timahoe. Lulu also won
two All Ireland senior 7’s titles, An All Ireland U16 medal in
1988, one NFL Division 1 and NFL Division 2. Lulu was honoured
with an All Star and one replacement All Star during her glittering
football career. In 2007, Lulu was a worthy recipient of the GAA
president’s award on St Patrick’s Day in Croke Park. Although
now retired from playing, Lulu was still actively involved in
Laois Ladies football and she is a selector with the present Laois

Lulu passed away yesterday after a long illness in the loving
care of her husband Ozzie, family and friends. She is survived
by her husband, parents Michael and Angela, brother’s Michael,
