13 players on the Meath Ladies Senior All-Ireland football winning team have been nominated for All-Star Awards.
The All-Ireland champions for 2022 received more awards than any other county with this year’s runners up, Kerry, getting 11 nominations.
Speaking to Meath Live, Fergal Harney, the public relations office for the senior ladies team said, “It’s amazing to get 13 nominations although I believe we were good enough to get 15.
“To have such a high number makes me think we’re guaranteed to win an award or two.”
Donegal, who contested the National League Division 1 final before reaching the last four of the All-Ireland series, have six players nominated, while Mayo have five nominees.
There are four nominations for Ulster champions Armagh, who were runners-up in the National League Division 2 final, while Dublin and Cork earn two nominations each.
Ten players from the 2021 All-Star team are nominated for awards again, including eight Meath stars who were honoured last year.
Meath goalkeeper Monica McGuirk, who already has two All-Star awards, is joined on the list of nominees by county team mates Vikki Wall, team captain Shauna Ennis, Aoibheann Leahy, Orlagh Lally, Kelsey Nesbitt and Stacey Grimes.
The other Meath nominees are Emma Duggan, Emma Troy, Aoibhín Cleary, Máire O’Shaughnessy, Mary Kate Lynch, and Niamh O’Sullivan.
“Our success this year has been all down to good teamwork. To get 13 nominations is a nice accolade in itself at the end of the year,” said Fergal Harney.
The Awards ceremony will take place at The Bonnington Hotel, Swords road, Whitehall on Saturday November 19th and an edited highlights of the night will be broadcast on TG4 next day.
