Ladies football:  awards for high-flying Dublin trio

Three of Dublin’s Ladies footballers have been awarded with a place on the 2021 TG4 Ladies Football All Star team. 

Leah Caffrey, Orlagh Nolan and Hannah Tyrell are all included in the team for the All-Ireland finalists.

It’s a third All Star award for Caffrey, with Nolan and Tyrell first-time winners.

ALL-Ireland Senior champions Meath lead the way with eight representatives on the team, which was revealed at the TG4 All Star awards banquet on Saturday evening.

Cork have two players on the XV, while Mayo and Donegal have one each. 

Meath’s Vikki Wall was named the 2021 TG4 Senior Players’ Player of the Year, Westmeath’s Sarah Dillon claimed the Intermediate award, while Carlow’s Clíodhna Ní Shé was voted the TG4 Junior Players’ Player of the Year. 

Elsewhere, Seán Moore Park hosted the Dublin Minor ‘D’ Football Championship final with Clanna Gael Fontenoy finishing strongly to beat Parnell’s by 1-14 to 0-11, while the Dublin MFC ‘E’ North and South finals resulted in home wins as O’Toole’s and Ballinteer St John’s taking the spoils.
