Camogie All-Star nominees announced, champions Kilkenny lead

Nominations for the PWC Camogie All-Star Awards have been announced, with All-Ireland Champions Kilkenny leading the way with 11 players.

Goaltender Aoife Norris, cornerbacks Michelle Tehan and Tiffany Fitzgerald, and midfielder Katie Power are among the Cats’ contenders, along with manager Brian Dowling.

Runners-up Cork lost by just one point in August, but are also one nomination behind, with a midfield pairing of Ashling Thompson and Hannah Rooney.

Meanwhile, Waterford received seven nominations, followed by Galway with five and Dublin with two. Limerick’s Caoime Costello was also shortlisted at half-forward, representing the sole nomination for Treaty County.

Also in contention for Manager of the Year are Galway’s Cathar Murray and Antrim’s co-managers Brian Carney and Mark McFadden.

The winner will be announced at the PWC Camogie All-Stars ceremony at Croke Park on Saturday, November 26th.

“2022 was an extraordinary year of athleticism, skill, hard work and determination from all our athletes,” said Hilda Breslin, president of the Camogie Association.

“I would like to congratulate those selected from this distinguished list of candidates for the PwC Camogie All-Stars, and congratulate them on their individual performances that have contributed so much to this incredible showcase of our game from start to finish.
