Benny Dillion (Loughgiel)

It was a special year for the Loughgiel camogs as they finally got the better of Sleacht Néill in the Ulster final after some major disappointments since their last success back in 2015. For that, their management team spearheaded by Benny Dillon deserves immense credit. Not only did they get the Sleacht Néill monkey off their backs, but they played some tremendous camogie in doing so and made it all the way to the All-Ireland final, where they gave a great account of themselves in a narrow defeat to Sarsfields.

Alastair McGilligan and Kieran McGourty (Clonduff)

An All-Ireland Intermediate triumph crowned a wonderful season for Clonduff. After a disappointing 2021, some key players returned to the fold and everything came together under their manager team of Alastair McGilligan and former Antrim footballer Kieran McGourty. In the Ulster final they edged their Tyrone rivals Eglish before going all the way to their second All-Ireland title in four years. Their management team played a big part in ensuring vastly experienced players like the Carr sisters gelled with talented newcomers like Katie Morgan.

Rodney Kerr (Brídíní Óga, Glenravel)

After years of near misses, Brídíní Óga emerged from the Antrim Intermediate Championship and their success story didn’t stop there. The Glenravel team, stacked with talented young dual players, didn’t let up and they bagged the Ulster and All-Ireland Junior titles in style. The man at the helm was Rodney Kerr, who helped instil a great spirit in the camp in a season that will surely never be forgotten around Glenravel.
