Carlow footballer Clíodhna Ní Shé has been nominated for the TG4 Junior Players’ Player of the Year Award.
The Bennekerry/Tinryland player goes up against Marie Kealy from Wicklow and Gráinne McLaughlin from Antrim with the winners revealed at the All Star Banquet at Dublin’s Bonnington Hotel on Saturday, November 13th.
Cliodhna was top scorer in the 2021 All-Ireland Championships with a total of 9-19 winning the golden boot.
The nominees have been announced for the 2021 TG4 Players’ Player of the year awards in the Senior, Intermediate and Junior grades.
The Senior short-list is comprised entirely of Meath players, with Emma Duggan, Emma Troy and Vikki Wall all nominated.
All three players are also nominated for TG4 All-Star awards, with the final 15 to be announced on the night.
In the Intermediate grade, two players from TG4 All-Ireland champions Westmeath are nominated, along with Clare’s Niamh O’Dea.
Sarah Dillon was Player of the Match for Westmeath in the All-Ireland Final victory over Wexford, and the Intermediate grade’s top scorer in 2021, and she’s nominated alongside team-mate Lucy McCartan.
The nominees in all three categories have all been selected by their fellow players, who could not vote for their own team-mates.
