Clodagh Tynan, who won a Soaring Star award last year, has been nominated again this year by the Camogie Association

TALENTED Laois defender Clodagh Tynan has been nominated by the Camogie Association for her second Soaring Star award.

The St Brigid’s player is the only Laois nominee for the 2021 awards, which are the all-star awards equivalent for intermediate and junior ranks in camogie.

Although it wasn’t a good year for the county, Clodagh’s usual brilliance on the half-back line has been rightly recognised by the national association.

Clodagh won a Soaring Star award last year, together with Laois goalkeeper Aedin Lowry.

The 2021 Soaring Stars team will be announced at a gala banquet at the Osprey Hotel in Naas, Co Kildare on Friday 26 November, subject to government guidelines. The 2021 All-Stars team and Players’ Player of the Year Awards will also be announced.

Nominees for the Camogie Association/GPA Senior, Intermediate and Junior Players’ Player of the Year Awards will be announced on Wednesday 27 October.

Uachtarán Hilda Breslin said: “It is a wonderful achievement for our players to be recognised for their outstanding performances throughout the 2021 inter-county season. Their skill, dedication and consistency has shone throughout the summer, today they are deservingly being recognised with these nominations.

I am delighted that once again we will be able to celebrate in person. I congratulate all our nominees on today’s achievements and I look forward with great excitement to the awards ceremony.”
