Limerick has received just one 2019 Camogie All-Star nomination.
Ahane’s Niamh Mulcahy makes this year’s shortlist announced today.
Limerick reached the All-Ireland Championship quarter-final – losing to Tipperary and reached the League semi-final – losing to Galway this season.
Mulcahy has been Limerick’s only nominee in recent years and is yet to make the final All-Star team. The top scorer was also nominated back in 2009.
All-Ireland champions Galway lead the Camogie All-Stars Awards 2019 shortlist. The final team will be announced at the 16th annual Camogie All-Stars Awards banquet, sponsored by Liberty Insurance in Citywest Hotel on Saturday, October 19th.
President of the Camogie Association Kathleen Woods congratulated the nominees stating that
“An All-Stars Award nomination recognises the outstanding achievements of our players and it is truly deserving for these tremendous role models to receive such recognition for their efforts.”.
This year’s winning team will also have the added incentive of the second All-Stars Tour to New York in November to look forward to, where they will be joined by the 2018 winners as well.
Speaking on behalf of Liberty Insurance, Stuart Trotter said:
“The Camogie All-Stars Awards celebrate the outstanding performances of the players who have helped to light up this year’s Championship. The skill, commitment and athleticism demonstrated by these players has elevated them to the very pinnacle of their sport. Their All-Stars nominations is deserved recognition for these same performances.
