Dublin captain Aherne named as 2018 TG4 Senior Players’ Player of the Year
DUBLIN’S Sinéad Aherne was named as the 2018 TG4 Senior Players’ Player of the Year at the annual All Star banquet, in association with Lidl, at the Citywest Hotel on Saturday night.
Aherne captained the Sky Blues to a second successive TG4 All-Ireland Senior title in front of a record 50,141 attendance at Croke Park on September 16 – and the St Sylvester’s star scored 1-7 in the Final victory over Cork.
In total, Aherne bagged 5-31 in the 2018 TG4 Senior Championship, and she was the popular choice with fellow players to finally claim the coveted individual award.
It was the third successive year that Aherne, 32, had been nominated for the Senior Players’ Player of the Year award.
Cork’s Bríd Stack won the 2016 title, while the 2017 gong went to Aherne’s Dublin team-mate Noelle Healy.
But it was very much a case of third time lucky for prolific forward Aherne, who also claimed a 7th TG4 All Star award on the night, and a third in as many years.
Aherne had been nominated for the Senior Players’ Player of the Year award alongside team-mate Lyndsey Davey and Cork captain Ciara O’Sullivan.
