BALLINASCARTHY’S Martina O’Brien has been nominated for her first LGFA TG4 All-Star Award.

The West Cork woman won her third All-Ireland with Cork last month and after a superb campaign the Cork goalkeeper has been shortlisted for an All-Star.

In total, Cork have 11 All-Star nominations after the county won its tenth All-Ireland in 11 seasons after victory over Dublin in the final last month.

Cork’s Marie Ambrose is rewarded for a fine debut season with her first nomination where she is joined by team mates Vera Foley, Geraldine O’Flynn, Bríd Stack and Deirdre O’Reilly as the Rebellettes defensive award nominees.

Briege Corkery and Rena Buckley created history as they claimed an incredible ‘double double’ of All-Ireland wins and both are nominated in the midfield positions, their eighth and fourth respectively.

All-Ireland winning captain Ciara O’Sullivan is joined by her attacking team mates Annie Walsh and Valerie Mulcahy in the All-Star shortlist.

Six members of the Cork team have now won ten TG4 Senior All-Ireland titles and all six are nominated for an All-Star – Geraldine O’Flynn, Deirdre O’Reilly, Bríd Stack, Briege Corkery, Rena Bucley and Valerie Mulcahy.

The LGFA TG4 All Star award winners will be announced at a gala ceremony at the Citywest Hotel on November 14th.

A limited number of tickets will be available to the public to purchase at €80 per person. For further information contact us at [email protected] or on 01-8363156
