Armagh goalkeeper nominated for award

ARMAGH goalkeeper Anna Carr has been nominated for the 2022 ZuCar Golden Glove award.

Carr, Carlow goalkeeper Nicole Hanley, TG4 All-Ireland Intermediate winner Eimear Barry from Laois, Mayo’s Aisling Tarpey and Meath’s TG4 All-Ireland Senior Championship winner and current All Star, Monica McGuirk, are the five goalkeepers in with a chance of claiming the award.

The ZuCar Golden Glove award was introduced in 2021 to acknowledge goalkeeping excellence during the TG4 All-Ireland Championships, with Longford’s Riane McGrath was the inaugural recipient.

Voting is now open to crown the 2022 winner and option A is an outstanding save by Armagh goalkeeper Anna Carr against Monaghan, to deny Rosemary Courtney from close range.

Option B is another excellent save, this time from Carlow goalkeeper Nicole Hanley to repel an Antrim attack in the TG4 All-Ireland Junior Championship semi-final. Antrim would prevail but Hanley was excellent on the day for Carlow.

Option C is a wonderful save from Laois goalkeeper Eimear Barry at a crucial stage in the TG4 All-Ireland Intermediate Final, as Wexford forward Aisling Murphy threatened to find the back of the net at the Canal End of Croke Park.

Option D is another superb point blank save, this time from Mayo goalkeeper Aisling Tarpey to deny Melissa Duggan as the Westerners overcame Cork in the TG4 All-Ireland Senior Championship quarter-final.

And option E is Meath’s TG4 All Star goalkeeper Monica McGuirk, who performed vital heroics to keep out a close-range effort from Galway’s Charlotte Cooney, as the Royals prevailed by just a single point in a gripping TG4 All-Ireland Senior Championship quarter-final.

The winner of the 2022 ZuCar Golden Boot is Laois star Mo Nerney, who finished as leading scorer in the 2022 TG4 All-Ireland Championships, with a haul of 5-31 for the TG4 All-Ireland Intermediate champions.

Mo will be presented with her award, along with the Golden Glove winner, in September.
