Offaly’s Kate Aherne has been selected as one of 15 players to receive a Camogie Association ‘Soaring Star’ Award.
The Shinrone player was the imposing full-back on the Offaly team which reached the All Ireland Junior A Final this year and was Offaly’s best and most consistent performer throughout the campaign.
Kildare have seen their efforts rewarded with six places on the 2013 Soaring Stars team announced by the Camogie Association.
Laois, this year’s Premier Junior finalists have collected five awards while Karen Tinnelly (Down), Carol Ann Canning (Dublin) and Denise McGrath (Westmeath) complete this year’s Soaring Stars team.
The awards will be presented at a black tie event at Citywest on November 2.
On the same night Offaly’s five Camogie All Star nominees will find out if they have been selected on the team of 2013.
