Kilkenny’s Sarah Crowley is in the running to be named intermediate player of the year by the Camogie Association/GPA.
The shortlist for this year’s Camogie Association/GPA Players’ Player of the Year Awards were announced on Wednesday crossing the senior, intermediate and premier junior championships.
Kilkenny’s senior players miss out with All-Ireland finalists Galway (Aoife Donohue, Niamh Kilkenny) and Cork (Hannah Looney) represented.
Mooncoin stand-out Crowley has been the subject of praise on more than one occasion as conversations continue on our Camán Caint podcast and finds herself in the running for the intermediate award alongside Antrim duo Maeve Kelly and Roisin McCormick – both of whom were on fire for Antrim across their championship season.
Antrim beat Kilkenny 2-21 to 2-13 though the game was much wider than the scoreline suggests.
The premier junior nominees include Wexford duo Chloe Cashe and Aideen Brennan alongside Armagh’s Ciara Donnelly.
Players who are members of an intercounty panel, participating in this year’s Championship will now be invited to vote on their Player of the Year based on the final shortlists.
The overall winners will be announced on the night of the Camogie All-Stars Awards on November 26th.
