IN-form Dublin forward Hannah Tyrrell has been honoured with the Croke Park/LGFA Player of the Month award for May.
Tyrrell, 30, has been a key figure for the Sky Blues in their march to a Lidl National League Division 1 Final clash with Cork at Croke Park on Saturday. Tyrrell marked her return to inter-county duty with Dublin by starring and scoring 1-5 against Waterford on May 23, before following up with a 2-7 haul in the victory over Cork at Páirc Uí Chaoimh six days later.
Tyrrell would add three pointed frees against Tipperary as Dublin concluded their group phase, before she registered 0-7 (4f) in the Division 1 semi-final victory over Mayo. Now playing for the Na Fianna in the capital, Tyrrell has returned to the inter-county scene for the first time since 2014
In the interim, Tyrrell enjoyed a glittering international rugby career, before calling time on her career in the green shirt recently.
Tyrrell was an All-Ireland U16 winning goalkeeper with Dublin and she’s also the proud holder of All-Ireland minor and Senior B titles.
She was also a 2011 Dublin Intermediate Championship winner with the Round Towers, Clondalkin, club.
Hannah was presented with her award today by Sean Reid, Deputy General Manager, The Croke Park.
