And the winner of the Offaly Sports Star of the Month award for October is....

After a week of voting, thousands of votes and a close two horse race, Kilcormac-Killoughey Camogie star Jane Lowry has been crowned the Offaly Sports Star of the Month for October.

Jane amassed 27% of the vote to win ahead of Ferbane footballer Cian Johnson on 23%. Kickboxer Cathal Dunne took third spot with 10%.

Jane showed herself to be a very important cog in the KK wheel in October as she won the Player of the Match award in their win in the U16 County Camogie Final.

She hit a personal tally of 0-4, including a number of placed balls to really show her class.

She followed that performance just days later with another Player of the Match performance in the Minor final, proving that she is one of the fastest rising stars in Offaly Camogie. 

Jane will now receive a specially commissioned glass trophy sponsored by Guy Clothing and will go forward to the Offaly Sports Star of the Year award in January.
