Laois sharpshooter named Player of the Month for June

LAOIS SHARPSHOOTER ERONE Fitzpatrick has landed The Croke Park/LGFA Player of the Month award for June 2022.  

The 21-year-old star has been in glittering form for the O’Moore county through their All-Ireland intermediate championship tilt to date.

Next up is a semi-final meeting with Clare on Sunday, with Wexford and Roscommon also doing battle for a place in the Croke Park showpiece.

Park-Ratheniska clubwoman Fitzpatrick has played a key role for Laois through their campaign to date, registering 4-9 in the last three outings. 2-5 of that came in June, first against Tyrone in the group stages and then Wicklow in the quarter-final.

She hit the Red Hand for 1-2; her magnificent solo goal gaining plenty of traction after a significant victory over the intermediate heavyweights:

Fitzpatrick is back to her brilliant best after a cruciate ligament knee injury in 2020, having already amassed some other memorable moments through her career to date.

She captained Scoil Chríost Rí to the Lidl All-Ireland Post Primary Schools A title in 2019, and was an O’Connor Cup winner with University of Limerick earlier this year.

Fitzpatrick — also in the running for the PwC GPA Women’s Player of the Month Awards for June, nominated alongside Cork’s Doireann O’Sullivan and Nicole Owens of Dublin — was presented with her award today by Ina Lazar, Sales Manager, The Croke Park. 

While it’s semi-final weekend in the intermediate championship, the senior competition is down to the last eight.
