Meath’s Máire O’Shaughnessy is The Croke Park/LGFA Player of the Month for June

MEATH midfielder Máire O’Shaughnessy has been honoured with The Croke Park/LGFA Player of the Month award for June.

O’Shaughnessy, 28, played a starring role for the Royal County as they captured the Lidl National League Division 2 title at Croke Park on June 26, to gain promotion to the top flight for the 2022 campaign.

The Donaghmore-Ashbourne star scored a point during the course of a sublime midfield display, to cap a memorable League campaign for Eamonn Murray’s outfit.

It was also a superbly-consistent League season for O’Shaughnessy, who led by example in the Meath engine room.

O’Shaughnessy is one of the key figures in Meath’s set-up – and she captained her county to TG4 All-Ireland Intermediate Championship glory in 2020.

She was named on the 2021 Lidl Team of the League for Division 2 and played the full game last Saturday as Meath lost out narrowly to Cork by two points in their TG4 All-Ireland Senior Championship opener.

Meath still have the chance to advance to the quarter-finals of the competition – and O’Shaughnessy will have a vital role to play against Tipperary in TG4’s live TV fixture on Friday, July 23.

Máire was presented with her award today by Alan Smullen, General Manager, The Croke Park.
