NOMINEES: Dual Player of the Year 2023

Below are the nominees for the 2023 Dual Player of the Year. Find out more about this year’s shortlisted nominees below.

Lauren McConville – Crossmaglen

Not only is McConville a superb dual player for Crossmaglen, but she also lines out in totally different positions in both codes. In football, where she’d be more known, her position is in and around the middle of the field or in the half back line. In camogie however, McConville is the go-to scorer at full forward. McConville claimed four goals in the All-Ireland semi-final but the Cross camogs just lost out in the decider.


Pearse Og McCrickard – Liatroim

Between earning a selection on the Joe McDonagh Cup team of the year, helping Liatroim hurlers reach the semi-finals of the Down SHC and guiding the Liatroim footballers to Intermediate Championship glory, 2023 was a year to remember for McCrickard. He’s the key man for both the hurlers and the footballers and top scored in the Intermediate final against Rostrevor with an impressive tally of 0-8 as they earned a two-point win.


Corinna Doyle – Granemore

Doyle is one of the most impressive finishers around and she regularly rattled the net for both the Granemore ladies football team and the camogie team in 2023. She raised a green flag in the All-Ireland semi-final for the camogs as they downed Knockananna and repeated the trick in the final as Granemore saw off Athleague. For the footballers, Doyle rattled off a personal haul of 1-3 as Granemore overcame Clan na Gael to land the Intermediate crown.


Voting opens at 10am on Thursday 8th February and will close at 10am on Monday 12th February. Votes do not determine the final winners but help create awareness of the nominee’s shortlisting. The winner of this category will be announced at our Gala Awards Night at the Hillgrove Hotel, Monaghan on Friday 1st March 2024.
