Ulster players named in Soaring Star selection

THERE was an Ulster flavour to the 2022 PwC Camogie Soaring Stars selection with Antrim’s Dervla Cosgrove  named as Junior Player of the Year.

All-Ireland Intermediate champions Galway are represented by seven players: defenders Ciara Hickey, Clara Donohue, Katie Manning and Lisa Casserly on the back line.  Jennifer Hughes took her position in midfield, with forwards Katie Gilchrist and Niamh McPeake completing Galway’s selection.

Runners up in the Intermediate Championship Cork took home three Soaring Stars, with Ashling Moloney (full-back), Joanne Casey (half-forward) and Lauren Homan in corner-forward.

All-Ireland Premier Junior Champions Antrim also took home three Soaring Stars with goalie, Aine Graham, Emma Laverty in mid-field and Dervla Cosgrove as corner-forward.

Aoife Minogue of Meath and the recently wed Gráinne McNicholl complete the Soaring Stars line-up in the half-forward and half back positions.
