Caoimhe Costello nominated for Camogie All-Star following stellar 2022

The Adare native is Limerick’s sole representative on the list of 36 players which was announced on Wednesday morning.

Limerick superstar Caoimhe Costllo has been shortlisted for the 2022 PwC Camogie All-Stars following her performances for county over the summer.

Costello was named as the player of the month for June following a sensational scoring spree that saw Limerick into the knockout stages of the All-Ireland Championship.

The Adare native does face stiff competition for a place in the half forward line as she is up against Abby Flynn (Waterford), Denise Gaule and Julianne Malone (both Kilkenny).

It was Flynn and co that ended Limerick’s run in the competition as they proved too strong in the quarter-finals with Gaule and Malone both part of the victorious Kilkenny side in the All-Ireland final.

With Limerick suffering successive defeats to kickstart their championship campaign, Costello almost single handily dragged the Treaty outfit into the quarter-finals.

She bagged 2-25 in three games as Limerick saw off Offaly, Down and Antrim to book a first quarter-final spot in three years and also the Player of the Month award for June.

For Costello, the All-Star nomination comes in the midst of a star run with her club as Adare lie one game away from successive promotions. After winning the Junior championship in 2021, the West Limerick side booked their place in the Intermediate final over the weekend where they will meet Croagh Kilfinny.

Champions Kilkenny take prime position in the nominations of 36 players spread across 6 different counties. Players from Kilkenny (11), Cork (10), Waterford (7), Galway (5), Dublin (2), Limerick (1) are featured in this year’s PwC Camogie All-Stars nominations.

The presentations of the awards will take place at a star-studded PwC Camogie All-Stars ceremony on 26th November in Croke Park.
