AIB and the Camogie Association, have this morning announced the four Camogie Provincial Players of the Year along with the overall Team of the Year for the 2018/19 season of the AIB All-Ireland Senior Camogie Club Championship.
St. Martin’s Chloe Foxe from Leinster, Inniscarra’s Aileen Sheehan from Munster, Adrahan’s Shauna Healy from Connacht, and Slaughtneil’s Tina Hannon from Ulster have been named as Provincial Camogie Club Players of the Year for their respective provinces.
