ZuCar Golden Boot race between Laois and Fermanagh stars!

MO Nerney is in pole position to land the 2022 ZuCar Golden Boot award – but she could yet be caught by Fermanagh star Eimear Smyth.

Laois ace Nerney took her 2022 TG4 Championship haul to 5-31 by notching 1-5 in last Sunday’s Intermediate Final victory over Wexford at Croke Park.

In second place is Kerry’s Louise Ní Mhuircheartaigh, who moved on to 4-24 after scoring 1-2 in the Senior Final loss to Meath.

In third is Smyth, the Fermanagh sharp-shooter who will start the TG4 All-Ireland Junior Final replay on Saturday, August 13, on 5-20.

That total of 35 points from the All-Ireland series is 11 short of Nerney’s 46 but Smyth is a scoring machine and she can’t be discounted after scoring 1-3 in the drawn match with Antrim.

Wexford’s Aisling Murphy and Caitriona Murray are in fourth and fifth places respectively, while there are also slots in the top 10 for Laois pair Erone Fitzpatrick and Emma Lawlor, Clare’s Fidelma Marrinan, Carlow’s Sara Doyle and Cork forward Doireann O’Sullivan.
