“Any athlete who is at the top of their game in Cork is almost invariably leading the way on the national and international stage. That’s exactly the case here with Melissa and Ashling keeping Cork teams ahead of the rest in Munster and setting them up to challenge for All-Irelands again. Sanita is one of the country’s leading rowers and has proven herself time and again against the best in the world.”
Dohenys dynamo Melissa Duggan was the Player of the Match when Cork defeated Kerry in the Munster final at CIT, after nailing down a place at senior level with the ladies footballers since being called up in 2016.
For all her success to date, Thompson was delighted to get the opportunity to play a final in the revamped Páirc.
