Player’s Player of the Year Nominees Announced

The nominees for the LGFA TG4 Player’s Player of the Year Awards have been announced. There are three categories; Junior, Intermediate and Senior with three players nominated in each category. The nominees were voted for by their fellow players who could not vote for anyone on the same team in which they play themselves.

In the Junior Player’s Player of the Year category there is a unique situation as all three players are from Louth but only two of them represented Louth in the championship. Rosanna Heeney, a player who represented Louth in 2012 captained Scotland this year against her native county. TG4 Player of the Match from the All Ireland final, Paula Murray is also nominated along with team mate and ace attacker Kate Flood.


Waterford claimed the TG4 Intermediate All Ireland Championship this year and are rewarded with two nominartions including captain, Linda Wall and her sister and All Ireland final goalscorer, Aileen Wall. Despite not reaching the final Áine Tighe from Leitrim has been recognised for another excellent season as she is also nominated for the Player’s Player of the Year Award.


The dynamic midfield pairing for Cork of Rena Buckley and Briege Corkery round off an amazing season as both of the ‘Double Double’ winners have been nominated for the award which has previously been won by Corkery herself. Dublin’s captain and star forward, Lyndsey Davey, is recognised after another brilliant season after leading Dublin back to the All Ireland final following a series of inspirational performances.


The Provincial Young Player of the Year Award winners have also been announced and they will receive their awards at the LGFA TG4 All Star Awards at the Citywest Hotel on November 14th.
