Laois Ladies announce Senior, Intermediate and Junior Players of the Year for 2022

Amy Coss Alison Taylor Erone Fitzpatrick Ladies Player of the Year

The Laois LGFA have announced their Senior, Intermediate and Junior Players of the Year for 2022.

Alison Taylor of Portlaoise has been named Senior player of the year following her side’s triumph earlier this year.

The versatile Taylor has been instrumental in Portlaoise’s rise in recent years and was very impressive for them all year.

The sharpshooting Erone Fitzpatrick has been named as the Intermediate player of the year.

The Park-Ratheniska forward led her side back to the Senior grade and continued a brilliant year with Laois into the club season.

It could well be a glittering end to the year for Fitzpatrick as she has also been nominated for the All-Ireland Intermediate award.

She is up against her county colleagues Mo Nerney and Aisling Donoher for this award.

While Sarsfields forward Amy Coss has scooped the Junior player of the year award.

She scored 2-1 in the final as her side got the better of The Heath following a mammoth encounter after extra time.

Separately, Timahoe’s Mo Nerney will be recognised at the Laois GAA Awards as the overall LGFA Player of the Year.

Taylor, Fitzpatrick and Coss will receive their awards at a dinner dance which will be held later this month.

A spokesperson said: “Laois LGFA are delighted to announce Alison Taylor of Portlaoise as the Senior Club Footballer for 2022, Erone Fitzpatrick of Park Ratheniska is the Intermediate club player of the year 2022 and well done to Amy Coss of Sarsfields on winning Junior Footballer of the year 2022.

“These players were outstanding in their club jerseys this year.

“The players will receive their awards at the Laois LGFA dinner dance on November 26.

“The dinner dance is being held to recognise the achievements of our adult team who were League winners in 2021 and All Ireland Intermediate winners in 2022.”
