CORK legend Rena Buckley has been honoured with The Croke Park/LGFA Player of the Month award for November.

Rena sparkled for Donoughmore as they landed the All-Ireland Junior Club Championship title on November 24th.

During the month of November, 32-year-old Rena was in superb form, scoring a combined 1-13 in the All-Ireland semi-final and final.

As Donoughmore advanced past the challenge of Meath and Leinster Champions Navan O’Mahonys at the All-Ireland semi-final stage, Rena collected a personal haul of 1-6.

On All-Ireland final day, seven points from Rena helped to see off the spirited challenge of Mayo opponents MacHale Rovers in front of a bumper crowd at Duggan Park, Ballinasloe.

Victory for Donoughmore handed Rena a 21st All-Ireland medal, and her third at club level.

Rena was a member of the Donoughmore teams that landed the All-Ireland Senior club titles in 2001 and 2003, before recently adding a junior medal to her collection.

At inter-county level, Rena is an 11-time TG4 All-Ireland Senior Championship winner with Cork, while she also won seven All-Ireland Senior camogie medals with her county.
