Kilkenny’s Miriam Walsh has been nominated for the PWC GPA Camogie Player of the Year following an impressive season with Brian Dowling’s side.
Tullaroan forward Walsh was imperative for the Kittens as they secured a 15th All-Ireland title and a second in three years.
Denise Gaule was the last Kilkenny player to be named Player of the Year in 2020.
Walsh will be firm favourite to claim the award but faces stiff competition in the form of Cork’s Katrina Mackey and Waterford’s Lorraine Bray.
The shortlist for the intermediate and junior grades were also revealed today.
Galway duo Lisa Casserly and Niamh McPeake are up for the intermediate award alongside Cork star Joanne Casey.
The junior nominees all hail from Antrim with Dervla Cosgrove, Aine Graham and Emma Laverty nominated.
Speaking to mark the announcement of the three shortlists, Camogie Association Uachtarán Hilda Breslin said:
“I wish to congratulate the many deserving nominees of the PwC GPA Camogie Player of the Year Award.
“The recipients of these awards will be decided by their fellow players and highlights the respect each recipient is held in by their peers along with their own personal performance and dedication to the sport.
“Best of luck to all nominees and I look forward to finding out the winners on our Awards evening in Croke Park in November.”
The winners of the PwC GPA Camogie Players of the Year in all three grades will be announced at the PwC Camogie All-Stars on November 26th at Croke Park.
