My GAA Life

Perfect Player – Ciara Lappin selects her star players

In this feature we ask players to selects players with the best attributes:


Jenny Branniff
I played with Jenny at Queen’s and she could read the game so well.

Theresa McGowan 

Theresa McGowan was an awesome goalkeeper and always very vocal from the net, keeping us on our toes in the back-line.

Eileen O’Brien/Hannah Healy
The strongest I have played against is Eileen O’Brien (Limerick, pictured)– not such good memories of the All-Ireland semi-final in Casement Park.

The strongest I have played with is Hannah Healy – She is the toughest and hard as nails (missing teeth and all!)

Maureen Barry 

She has a natural talent.

Jane Adams
You could always count on Jane to score a free.
