Cork legends Briege Corkery and Bríd Stack shortlisted for Player of the Year award

Dublin star forward Sinead Ahearne was also nominated for the honour.

CORK DUAL STAR Briege Corkery looks like she could win her third TG4 Player’s Player of the Year award.

The 2015 Player of the Year has been nominated alongside her team mate and 11 time All-Ireland winner Bríd Stack, as well as Dublin full-forward Sinead Ahearne.

Both Corkery and Stack were pivotal throughout the Rebel’s championship campaign, as they helped Ephie Fitzgerald’s side to their 11th All-Ireland title in 12 years.

In the intermediate grade, Kildare’s All-Ireland heroine and goalkeeper Mary Hulgraine is in line for the honour, alongside her captain Aisling Holton and Clare full-forward Niamh O’Dea.

Antrim’s Claire Timony could win her second Junior Player’s Player of the Year Award but she faces stiff competition in the form of her fellow Saffron Mairéad Cooper and Longford captain Mairéad Reynolds.

The nominees for each category were announced earlier today and the winners will be revealed at the 2016 TG4 All Star Awards on 12 November.
