THE sport of Camogie has always been a particularly successful one for this county and the outstanding Sandie Fitzgibbon made a huge contribution to that success during her playing career.
Sandie enjoyed a very successful career which included winning seven consecutive senior county medals with her beloved Glen Rovers.
“I would say losing six All-Ireland titles in a row up to 1991 was the most disappointing for me but in a nutshell it was the same for all my teammates,” she said.
There are many legends in the sporting world on Leeside but the name of Sandie Fitzgibbon will always be remembered as one of Cork’s finest.
Won her first All-Ireland Minor camogie medal with Cork at the age of 14.
Was on six consecutive losing Cork teams in the All-Ireland camogie finals up to 1991 but her dream was realised in 1992 when she captained the Rebels to win the title.
Retired from inter-county camogie in 1997 and two years later did likewise at club level.
Played a total of 26 years at club level for Glen Rovers.
Won a total of 64 basketball caps for Ireland at Senior International level.
