Edenderry Ladies GAA Notes and News


GAA Dinner Dance

The Edenderry GAA dance held in the Hamlet in Johnstownbridge last Friday night was a great success and  a night thoroughly enjoyed by all, well done to the Execute committee on a superbly organised occasion and in particular to David Farrell for his assistance with the ladies club in the preparations. On the night the ladies club gave out two player of the year awards for minor and senior ladies. The Minor award went to Aisling O’Connor and the Senior award to Aoife O’Neill. Both girls were very deserving of their awards and many congrats to you both. The citations used on the night for the girls read as follows.         

            Edenderry Ladies GAA Minor Player of the Year 2011 Citation

          Our ladies minor player of the year award goes to an outstanding sportsperson who has played football at the highest level in all grades since taking up the game some years ago. Renowned as a very solid and dependable defender this lady is the eldest footballer in a family of exceptional ladies footballers. She has also excelled in other sports chief among them Athletics where she has won many awards and gives 100% commitment to all she does. In 2011 this lady captained the Offaly minor footballers to win a Leinster title and is currently on the Offaly ladies senior football panel for 2012. She has been playing senior football with Edenderry for the past number of years and will once again be an integral part of our team as we aim to win back the Ladies county title this year. Ladies and Gentlemen we are delighted to announce that the Edenderry Ladies Minor Footballer of the year is Aisling O’Connor.


                Edenderry Ladies GAA Senior Player of the Year 2011 Citation

Our ladies senior player of the year award goes to a girl who is one of the most committed players in the club who is generally one of the first down to training all year round. She has been playing football for a long number of years and for the past few years has cemented her position on the senior team and played a starring role in helping Edenderry ladies win both County and Leinster titles in 2010.  Noted as being solid and reliable she goes about her role in a most quiet and efficient way and she is an extremely popular and well liked lady amongst all her team mates. She also gets a huge amount of respect from our younger members who she gives great example to and we hope this lady will be with us for many years to come.
