AHERNE NAMED CROKE PARK PLAYER OF THE MONTH
From the Dublin Ladies website. Congratulations to Sinead and best wishes to Sinead, Nicole and Niamh and all the Ladies Dubs as they prepare for the All Ireland against Cork next week. Sinead Aherne has been named as ‘The Croke Park’ Player of the Month for August. The ace full forward has been Dublin’s main attacker all season and was instrumental in securing their progress through to the TG4 All Ireland Finals on September 25th in Croke Park.
Aherne was vital for Dublin as they came under pressure against a resilient Donegal team in the TG4 All Ireland Semi Final where her 1-06, all but three points of which were from play, was vital as Dublin held on to win by three points. Aherne was back to her very best in the thrilling TG4 All Ireland semi final against Mayo when it was her last gasp pointed free that secured the 1 point win for Dublin. Sinead scored all but 4 points of Dublin’s 2-10 tally in that match and, for the second successive match, she was named as the player of the match for her exploits.
Sinead plays her club football for St. Sylvester’s and is already a 4 time All Star.
Dublin will play Cork in the TG4 Ladies Senior All Ireland Football Final at Croke Park on September 25th with a 4pm throw in. Tickets for the match are on sale now at www.tickets.ie with group deals available from the LGFA on firstname.lastname@example.org or 01 8363156
